Over-Encumbered is a print of a digitally enhanced graphite drawing.

Video game logic is an endless source of amusement for me. Like when your character explores a crypt that’s been sealed for hundreds of years only to find a fresh-looking chicken dinner on a table, or when you think about why there are never any bathroom breaks? For you non-gamers, this drawing is a reference to any inventory-based game (like Skyrim or Witcher) in which your character is capable of carrying a ridiculous amount of weight (often as much as 400-500 lbs) but once you become “over-encumbered” you can no longer move quickly and are vulnerable to attack. You can carry as many swords, potions, sets of armor, crafting materials, and artifacts as your weight limit allows but you aren’t even carrying a backpack. I started to wonder what it would look like in real life and presto: fun drawing.

Nicole Gunter Biography

Nicole is a classically trained artist from Birmingham, Alabama, with a BFA from the University of Montevallo. Her incredibly detailed drawings and digital paintings seldom have a high concept or underlying theme; just the incoherent ramblings and corny jokes of a madwoman. She is influenced by video games, comedy, and stories or cartoons that showcase strong female leads (other influences also include Neil Gaiman, Jhonen Vasquez, Edward Gorey, and Drew Struzan). Nicole’s work ranges from concept art to fan art with a mix of satire and Norse mythology thrown in for fun. Nicole bounces back and forth between digital painting in Photoshop and more traditional media like graphite, manga markers, and watercolor.
