Welcome to Suplex City

ALE+ALE traded their romantic European digs for something a bit more sinister while working on one of our favorite projects from 2016, the inimitable “Suplex City” – home of WWE® 2K17 and the latest addition to the flagship WWE video game franchise.

ALE+ALE: Suplex City intro

Showcasing the ALE’s more ominous side, the atmospheric artwork for Suplex City creates a chilling environment for wrestling fans to engage with their favorite heroes and antiheroes. Per their press release, “WWE 2K17 delivers an unprecedented combination of authenticity, realism and action-packed gameplay in a WWE video game experience, including the largest roster of WWE and NXT Superstars in franchise history”. It was pretty exciting to be involved with something of this magnitude.

More Excitement from 3×3 – Merit Awards for Valeria Petrone

Ladies and gentlemen, it appears we may have made Carlo Giambarresi’s 3×3 announcement a bit prematurely yesterday, as the contest has honored not one but TWO of our fabulous Italians!

Congratulations, Valeria!

“A World Conceived by Mistake” – Beautiful Personal Works from Valeria Petrone

It’s a joy to see what the MGI artists create when the “assignment” is nothing more than an exciting journey into their own imaginations.
Valeria Petrone is certainly no exception, and we were blown away by the suite of beautiful imagery she created for “A World Conceived by Mistake,” a surreal collection of stories written by her partner Umberto Sebastiano.
Taking place in a make believe universe, the collaboration takes on a surreal feel. You can take a look at this gorgeous suite of imagery here – and congratulations to Valeria and Umberto!
