A highly requested piece, here is 8-Bit Fraggle Rock! Despite the absolute saturation of The Muppets and Sesame Street during the 80s, somehow the Fraggles are more sentimental. I don’t know why.
ALSO, these Fraggles are proportionately correct, based on this original concept sketch I had access to, and took a photo of a couple of years ago!
One of the few constants I have had in my life is professional wrestling. Ever since I was four years old, I have been a pro wrestling fan. One of the hardest parts of being a lifelong wrestling fan is being emotionally engaged with a form of entertainment that has a shockingly high mortality rate. For those of you who do not, have never, and will never watch, having your childhood heroes die young (most of them as a direct result of ‘The Business’) is not fun.
If you have not heard yet, the Ultimate Warrior is no longer among the living. While I will not claim to be his biggest fan, he was still a fundamental part of my childhood. It is a loss made all the more upsetting, as he had just returned “home,” once again aligning himself with WWE. And yet, I am somewhat happy. I am happy that his last public moments were standing in the middle of the ring, amidst the fabled ‘Post-Mania RAW’ crowd. I am happy that his story had a proper ending.
And now, he is truly immortal.
WrestleMania 30 was the best WrestleMania ever.
We are less than a day away from WrestleMania 30! Here is a selection of my personal favourites from last month’s WrestleMania Project, all in chronological order!
Enjoy WrestleMania 30, everyone!
It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to draw anything, so please accept this 8-Bit Darth Vader as a token of apology.
It’s official: my 8-BIT TRIBUTE T-shirt is the best-selling t-shirt EVER on BarberShopWindow.com! Get yours today!
8-Bit Mickey Mouse, possibly the most iconic fictional character of the 20th Century! I chose to draw him as old-timey Mickey, mostly because it looked better. Also, old, early 20th Century cartoon characters have that weird look to them that I enjoy.
One of the first things I drew when I started making 8-Bit Art my “thing” was Nirvana, my favourite band. It was just them standing there, staring off into the distance, like they were posing for a low-resolution 90s publicity photo (except that it wasn’t in edgy black-and-white).
Anyway, since I’ve been working with a new character template (along with making my characters more detailed; for instance, MOUTHS!), I’ve decided to revisit some of my older drawings, so here you go: 8-Bit Nirvana redux! They’re even in the midst of performing a song! Which song? I’ll leave that up to your imagination! Just keep in mind that there are plenty of 8-Bit remixes of Nirvana songs on YouTube.
Also, I like this design SO MUCH, I’ve decided to make a t-shirt out of it. CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT T-SHIRT.
Fan Request: Sailor Moon. This turned out FAR better than I could have possibly imagined.
