And one more dose of AJ Hateley’s Dishonored art, this time the wispy, brushy spectre of Dishonored‘s Corvo, both well spotted over the weekend by one of the game’s writers, novelist Austin Grossman, and both already available in print or card form from Hateley’s Redbubble store.
Posted here as a tribute to How I Spent My Weekend, and not just because it’s super gorgeous, the frequently-featured AJ Hateley posts this illustration (which I’d happily sit straight next to the best work Ashley Wood did for Metal Gear) of The Outsider from Arkane’s Dishonored, still totally my top pick for big-budget game of the year (neck & neck with Dragon’s Dogma).
Back just before I’d left for GameCity I posted this preview of A.J. Hateley’s “Gaming Luggage Labels”, which were said to be coming in some secret capacity to the festival itself. As it turns out, they were there adorning “The Sheriff”, a custom arcade cabinet on public display in the main GameCity tent.
While the cleverly-named Sheriff itself was wicked enough — running, as it was, Pippin Barr’s amazing lo-fi Johann Sebastian Joust demake Ludwig Von Beatdown — Hateley’s designs somewhat stole the show.
Unbeknownst to us at the time, Hateley concurrently had opened a shop selling the first set of the stickers via RedBubble here — available in packs of two for the smaller designs and singly for the larger. Hateley adds that purchases of at least six packs get a 50% discount, so there’s no excuse to load up on the entire set and give your own cabinet/bumper/Samsonite the full treatment.

Oh, the places we’ve gone — part one of two luggage-side pieces by previously-featured illustrator A.J. Hateley that’s been put together, it seems, for some manner of secret event coming along to this year’s GameCity 7, starting this coming Saturday.
Brought to you from journals the blockiest version of the HMS Beagle you can imagine, an artist’s rendition (here, the artist being A.J. Hateley, she of the popular & similarly-antiqued videogame book covers) of the innocuous birth of a monster.
