I had always wondered about the lives of video game heroes and villains before they hit the small screen, thrown into circumstances sometimes beyond their control.
Were they good people? Family men & women? Did they work hard, or were they easy-going?
It can be hard to tell, and we rarely ever see that side of these people we control. Sometimes the most interesting story is the mundane one: did they do their job good? What did they have for breakfast? Did they drink decaf or regular coffee? I took a little bit of time tonight and created some simple representations of their possible mundanity, hoping to minimally flush out their work lives in the only way I know possible: business cards.
Some of the cards are quirky, some are semi-professional. All of them are slight representations of what these heroes and villains would do during the day (or night) before they were thrust into the spotlight.
[Update: Thanks to the folks who’ve pointed out a couple errors. I’ll fix them in the next batch of cards.]
