Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Interactive Game Artwork

Among the multiple projects that I tackled during my graduate studies at Tyler School of Art, easily one of the most fun projects to work on was an interactive children's eye-spy / visual scavenger hunt game based on the Flaming Lips' album Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots. In the game, Yoshimi is the designated guardian of Citius Major (seen in the background of this splash screen illustration), and has to use her uncanny powers of observation and detection to find the pink robots that have hidden themselves throughout the city. The robots were loosely disguised as commonplace objects which the game players have to tap and test to find out what's a robot and what's not.
