PPR Two Years Commemorative poster, May 2011, Pencil, Ink, Adobe Photoshop

Press Pause Radio is a podcast about video game culture run by self-proclaimed "loveable scumbag" GeorgieBoysAxe. PPR releases a new episode about twice a month wherein the panelists discuss a select topic, either a specific game, console, or gameplay mechanic.
With the two-year anniversary of Press Pause Radio drawing near, I was approached by Georgie to create a poster celebrating the previous year, littered with as many of the podcast's "in" jokes as possible, and highlighting each of the podcast's panelists and editors. George made up a list of some twenty or so in-jokes and references for me to choose from, and in the end I managed to hit about 90% of them.
I hand-drew and inked this poster on Canson FanBoy comic art board, then colored and added text and graphics where appropriate in Photoshop.
