How Hayao Miyazaki Opened my Mind, Sailor Moon and David Bowie made me a Digital Artist, and Why I explain images to people.

This is the last lecture I gave after 7 1/2 years as a contract professor at Fanshawe college.*

“I learned HTML to share Sailor Moon with the world.”

I talk about the intersections of pop culture, videogames, and art and how all of that influenced the way I taught art history and make art work. How the past may be very distant, but manages to touch everything we do.
Thank you to Ainsley Arnold for recording video I spliced into the slides. Thank you to Dames Making Games and friends for encouraging me to post my lecture.

And of course, thanks again Fine Art! It was blast teaching art history and seeing all the work each of you created during your education.

*I left teaching not because of a lack of passion, but because I can’t live off the $8000 I make teaching four classes a year. (yes, eight thousand dollars a year, you didn’t misread and I didn’t mistype.)

Finished a new game for No Jam via Dames making games. It’s called Stepper, and follows up on some of the ideas I had in Iron Cat. It’s an RPG about my experience in healthcare and the resulting PTSD that came from my symptoms and poor care. It is a rough draft, I’m gonna continue plucking away on it.

I programmed it and wrote it. The music and graphics are all from RPG Maker VX Ace and a few tilesets I bought.

Check it out. I’m working on a longer essay about the game.

It’s appearing as part of GAME/CHANGE & Extraordinary Mind Game Arcade as part of Rendezvous With Madness film festival with Workman Arts on Nov 12 2016
