Some of the artwork above was created for our first videogame project Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. Much of the artwork was created for the purposes of research, and all of it was created with honest effort and genuine pleasure. We hope you dig it.
Superbrothers was established back in 2003 and in the years following we have occasionally been asked to create artwork for various things including events, records, books, magazines, newspapers and videogames. While we're generally pretty busy with an in-house Superbrothers videoagme project, we usually do consider these opportunities and if the gig is compatible enough with our aesthetic goals and abilities, and if our schedule allows it, we'll dig in and start painting... so that said, if you have a super sweet gig in mind then feel free to ping us at hello at superbrothers.ca.
Our most commonly used tools are Pro Motion by Cosmigo for pixel painting, Illustrator for text and vector elements, Photoshop for final mix-down and 'special sauce'. There are high-resolution wallpapers in them thar galleries, if you are so moved feel free to toss some $ in the tip jar at right.
Unfortuntaely we don't have posters or prints or t-shirts of anything to offer just yet but feel free to hop on our teletex email list list to stay in the loop and we'll let you know when the situation changes.
If you're on twitter and you'd like to stay in the loop that way then we have a few feeds that you may wish to follow. The first is @superbrothersHQ, this feed's motto is 'signal > noise' and it is updated very sparsely, only when there is some signifincant Superbrothers news to broadcast. The second twitter feed we operate is @the1console, this feed is updated more frequently by Superbrothers staff and it has the motto 'flotsam & jetsam'. Oh, and this would be a good opportunity to tell you about the sworcery tumblr, where some incredible fan art and music submissions are still being posted, you can stay up-to-date with these via @sworceryAVjam. For a different angle on what's happening at Superbrothers HQ you might also wish to follow staffer @aurorajorealis.
