art in phoenix

Phoenix at the Napa riverfront.  After the show, we had lunch at Downtown Joe’s brewery (absolutely delicious, awesome place, very dog friendly! 4 paws and a snout will go again) and then wandered along the waterfront, spending some time at the place and enjoying it.  Phoenix really appreciated sighting on the waterfowl, especially a big pair of noisy geese, although she understood that she wasn’t going to be allowed to chase any of them.

I did find a park where I could let her dash some slow, exciting city squirrels up trees (with me firmly attached to the other end of the leash).

I made her pose in front of this gorgeous tile mural and that expression is the best ‘mommmm do I have to??’

Two sweaty men, two cheap suits, and one murder.

Ok, so, I love Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney. It was a great game. I’m so glad it was made. It was a joy to play. 

BUT

WHY DOES EVERY PIECE OF CONCEPT ART WE’RE GIVEN POINT TO A MUCH COOLER GAME WHICH GOT DISCARDED? 

WE NEARLY GOT ADORABLE PL-STYLE PHOENIX AND MAYA

WE NEARLY GOT BADASS AA-STYLE LAYTON

WE NEARLY GOT EVIL VERSIONS OF LAYTON AND PHOENIX 

LARRY AND MILES NEARLY GOT INCLUDED IN COOL FANTASY COSTUMES! WHAT HAPPENED? WHO DECIDED THIS WASN’T A GOOD IDEA? 

WE NEARLY GOT THIS GUY

AN EVIL DISGUISE MASTER! OH MY GOD, LOOK AT HIM! I WANT TO KNOW MORE! WHO IS HE? WHAT DOES HE WANT? HOW DOES HE OPERATE?


WHYYYY LEVEL-5 AND CAPCOM? 

*ahem* So anyway, rant over 

It was still a great game even if they did waste some opportunities

Why do you assume you’re the smartest in the room?
Soon that attitude may be your doom.

I got hit with the sudden urge to sketch some dysfunctional lawyers whilst listening to the Hamilton soundtrack. I’ve missed them.
