“No case too big, no fee too small.”

Abigail’s Nancy Drew Dream Games, in no particular order:

The year is 1962. Things take a turn as you are transported back in time to solve a case as The Magnificent Markovic. The 20 year old amateur detective is at the peak of his career when he receives a call to investigate a case outside of his small hometown of River Heights. A string of thefts have plagued New York’s upper class. You, as Alexei, have been called in by a distant relative who has recently become a victim. She says that the thief only strikes during lavish parties where there’s always a huge crowd of people, but never any witnesses; and after every theft a charitable organization receives a hefty donation. Is there a modern day Robin Hood running around New York? Can you make the right choice and decide between what’s good and what’s right? Help Alexei solve this case before things get out of hand in, Nancy Drew: The Great Alexei Markovic.

- Experience New York during the 1960s

- Play as River Heights’ original kid detective and get a firsthand look at Alexei’s life during his hay-day 

- Interact and blend in with New York high society as you try gather clues

- Choose difficulty levels! Play as Junior or Senior detective and erase mistakes without starting over

Progress photo of mine. If you cannot tell, it is HEAVILY influenced by one of my favorite artists, Samantha Keely Smith. Other influences include Claude Monet and Abigail Markov.

This particular piece is for a March of Dimes project that I was lucky enough to be selected to participate along with some other incredibly talented, and much more experienced artists for terminally sick and disabled children. I am so honored and proud and hope the whole project comes together perfectly!

This piece is called Ascent.
