A week or so back, I stumbled across the Blackwell game series (or rather, finally got around to trying out one of the games I’d bought a while back in a Humble Bundle). It didn’t take long for me to get hooked - good games, with good artwork, good story (socially awkward book reviewer/aspiring writer Rosa Blackwell reluctantly teams up with 40s ghost Joey Malone; together, they fight crime help restless spirits into the afterlife) and an old-school point-and-click adventure game feel that brought me back to my days of playing Monkey Island.

If point-and-click detective ghost stories sound like something you’d be interested in, I wholeheartedly recommend checking these out even though the last one toyed with my poor heart in ways no game should ever be allowed to do. Alternatively, if you’re already a fan, do stop by and say hi - I could really do with more people to talk and vent all of my feelings to.

Regarding the art itself - I wanted to draw something Blackwell-related, and I wanted to practice my scenery. This felt like a natural choice.
