Wanna Play a Game?

I finally finished and uploaded my Game Pieces Mega Clip Art Pack last night!  It includes everything pictured here in addition to the line art, bringing the total to a whopping 183 images.  Check it out in my shop for more details!

I truly enjoyed every minute I spent creating these images.  There was a long list of possible things to include and less than half of them made it in before the set was bursting at the seams.  I'll just have to make another game pack or two in the future!

Working on the chess pieces took me right back to my teenage years when my six-year-old brother would wipe the floor with me every time I agreed to play chess with him.  He was part of the chess club at school and he became quite the little strategizer!  It got to the point where I wouldn't even play with him anymore because, as a slightly angsty teen, I couldn't take the humiliation.  As I got older I was able to get over myself and my annoyance shifted to amazement at his talent.  He could beat anybody, and he loved it!  Then he became an angsty teen, himself, and his interests shifted to "cooler" things.  He may not play chess much anymore, but he remains just as talented at everything else he does!  You should hear him play in his steel drum band, Bram Brata!  Though I am incredibly proud of him and his abilities, and love him to crumbs, I still refuse to play him at chess.
