After several months’ work, my friend Macaw45 has finally released his masterpiece KEVIN COSTNER’S WATERWORLD – an original action-adventure PC game based on the fictional WATERWORLD arcade game featured (very briefly) as a joke in a 1997 episode of The Simpsons.
Not too long ago I managed to pick up a surprisingly cheap copy of MARIO PAINT for the Super Famicom, complete in box with the mouse. It’s pretty fun! I messed with it a bit on stream, and at the suggestion of my stream chat I made an attempt at drawing Scorpion from Mortal Kombat!
Painting with a mouse, in a strictly limited colour palette, on a tiny canvas, with no layers, and only one undo step sure is a challenge! But creating under constraints can be a lot of fun too, and I definitely enjoyed this.

A few days ago some old art I had posted on Twitter went viral, and all of a sudden I found myself getting a few hundred new followers in just a day or two! Having hovered around 2,700 followers for a while, I’d thought about trying to draw something to commemorate the milestone once I hit 3K, but it ended up happening a lot more suddenly than expected, so I had to kind of rush it 😂
In any case, to celebrate reaching 3,000 followers, I decided to draw three flavours of one of my favourite characters, Cammy! Despite being a bit rushed, I was quite happy with how it turned out, and it was a fun challenge to try and draw the STREET FIGHTER 6 version for the first time. Needless to say there isn’t a lot of good reference out there at this point… 😅
2021 was a productive year for me in many ways, but blogging sure wasn’t one of them! I’ve felt bad about neglecting my website (outside of keeping the gallery updated), and although I’ve never really believed in new year’s resolutions, I do feel compelled to plant some kind of figurative flag in the ground and commit to resume blogging in the new year.
We’ll be kicking things off soon with the traditional look back at a bunch of cool old games I played for the first time in the past year, but after that I hope to be putting up new articles with some degree of regularity again. I’ll try to at least reach a point where a majority of posts aren’t just me going “hey I have a blog I should write for some time, don’t I?” 😩
In the meantime, here’s a little summary of the artwork I’ve created in the past year in case you haven’t been keeping up. Of course, you can see the full versions and more artwork in the Gallery.
Happy new year everybody, and see y’all in 2022! ✌
How about this, a rare non-stream related artwork! Cammy is one of my favourite characters, but I hadn’t drawn her in a long time. January 6 is Cammy’s birthday, and I had a little time to spare, so I decided it was a perfect opportunity to finally draw her again!

Due to public demand, I have opened an official merch store! Now you too can be the proud owner of various t-shirts, coffee mugs and other items featuring artwork from the Jiggeh.com gallery. Just click the link in the top menu (or just RIGHT HERE) and check out the items for sale! More items featuring more of my art will be made available in the future.
Any purchases made through my merch store will send a few dollars my way, and help support my streaming, game collecting, website and art – so in addition to nifty stuff, you’ll also get my eternal gratitude! You can’t really beat that deal.
After a little bit of fiddling, the GALLERY section of Jiggeh.com is finally online! The permanent link is up there in the header.
This gallery is a repository for all the artwork I create for the “Draw this game” Kahn Coin reward on my Twitch channel – where viewers can request artwork of the games I play on stream. The gallery will be continuously updated as I create new artwork – more is already on the way!
Collected thoughts on games, game design, art and whatnot.
