Today's Design : CHRISTMAS FIGHTER
Please tell us about this art.
This is a mashup of my an old NES game's character select screen, and a bunch of my (and probably others) favorite Christmas movies from my childhood.
What inspired this work? What does the work represent?
I love all things pixel-art and retro video game, so naturally I wanted to do something holiday related for this time of year that represented those loves. Thus, the Christmas Fighter was born!
Anything your fans should particularly know to enjoy this art?
They should be well versed in their Christmas classics! See if you know all the characters!
Please tell us a little about you.
I'm an artist from Vancouver, Canada. I like pixels, hockey (of course), and long walks on the beach.
Where do you live and what do you do?
After leaving my Canadian home, I now reside near Philadelphia, PA. When I'm not making nifty designs, I also work on creating video games!
Art- your passion, or living, or both?
I'm trying very hard to make it work as both! I like to make tee designs, as well as do art for video games, and hopefully I can turn that into my living.
Please tell us about your most favorite shirt.
My favorite shirt I own… is probably my D.A.R.E. shirt I got back when I was a kid. I actually have two, and I still wear them today.
Your childhood dream? Favorite character?
I think at some point in my childhood I wanted to be an Archeologist. But I think "Pokemon Master" is my true calling. My favorite character is probably Kiki, of Kiki's Delivery Service. That movie always tugs at my heart.
What do you do the best? The worst?
I like to think I do the whole pixel-art thing pretty well, and have had some success in doing it for other people as well. I'm really bad at watching football. I still don't understand the rules.
