When Jetpack Factory approached me with a request to populate their little Flappy Bird style game with a slightly abstracted desert world for their rainbow-propelled panda to fly through, I just couldn't say no! Some sand dunes here, some cacti there and some onion-domed structures in the background... that's how deserts work, right?
My personal favourite aspect of this project was illustrating the giant cacti that act as obstacles for our heroic panda. Now and again they appear with big smiling faces that follow the panda as he flies under or above them. They even look sad and apologetic when the player knocks into one! Super cute.
