Evening Commute

A view from mass transit, quietly taking a bumpy ride across town.

A bit rough, but functional.

Need a quick visual special effect simulating sonar pings?

Here you go.

Angry Sun

Inspired by the 2021 Heatdome event in the Pacific Northwest.

It was unpleasant.

Ships setting sail on a distant sea at dawn.

A rough 10-second cartoon I doodled.

Angry Cat in Rain

This is just a rough 10-sec doodle of an angry cat that's been sitting in the rain too long.

Nerds Hi Score

A mock-up of an in-game leaderboard for an old-school arcade game.

2D Casual Game Development

Created using MIT's Educational Game Development Tool Scratch

NerdShip Space Shooter

WORK IN PROGRESS

This is a random doodle I've made on Scratch, an online video game creation tool, created by the smart folks at MIT. I used to teach elementary school students how to create and debut their own video games with Scratch, on-site at several locations within the Seattle Public School District.

Click the green flag to start, red stop sign to stop.

Move your ship around the game screen by moving your mouse (the ship will follow your cursor). Scratch is not known for it's quick response times, so bear with it. :)

Several buttons fire. All fire buttons are equally powerful, they just play different notes (from an electric guitar app on "Zelda", my Nintendo 3DS):
Fire by pressing buttons A, S, D, F, G or Space Bar.

This partially-complete, not-for-profit game is inspired by old-school arcade games like Gyruss and Phoenix, and perhaps a skosh of Flash Gordon. The title and ship appearance are inspired by folks at G4TV, Nerdist News and Nerdist Industries, LLC (not affiliated, I'm just a fan).

Is it Rain or is it Blood?

WORK IN PROGRESS

Too much Summer sun? Need a random thunderstorm? Don't mind if it's raining blood?

This is a random doodle I made on Scratch, an online video game creation tool, created by the smart folks at MIT.  I used to teach elementary school students how to create & debug their own video games, on-site at several locations within the Seattle School District.
 
Just click the Green Flag to start, red stop sign to stop. Scratch isn't known for its quick response times, so please bear with it!
 
It's not so much a game (currently). It's just sort of a simple app that can run randomly forever, for when you need to see & hear some rain, thunder and lightning.
And perhaps a ghost.
 
I (briefly) used to teach kids how to create, program & debug their own video games using Scratch for a local non-profit, on-site at several elementary schools in the Seattle Public School District.

Magic Eight-Ball

  • Tap the Green Flag to start.
  • Think of a question, and tap your spacebar to get a response from the Eight-Ball oracle.
  • Tap the red stop sign to stop.

When I applied for a job as an Assistant Teacher at Creative Coding, I was tasked to submit a simple game or app to go along with my job application. So I made this.

Attention: Headhunters/Recruiters

Sometimes short-term employment is exactly what some folks need.

Hiring entire departments full of hundreds of "Perma-temps" year after year, is something else entirely.

If you are only offering temporary/contractor employment, then please be prepared to answer the question,

"How many years do you or your client intend to stay in business?"

The "gig" mentality of project-to-project employment has no future.

Short-changing the future of America's workers is bad for everybody.

Being a "Perma-temp" is not a career.
