(PG-13, Gore/Language) Elvis and Dimmi are not your typical adventurers. Or maybe they are, depending on how you play video games. Ivan Dixon and pixel art master Paul Robertson present this gaming-inspired short film about two jerks and their goblin lackey.
For anyone who grew up playing arcade games in the 1990s, this graphic should be familiar. Decor8BitArt transformed the pixelated admonition from the DOJ, the FBI, and William Sessions into a cheeky bit of dimensional wall art. Includes a 9″ x 9″ wood frame with glass.
Electronic music phenom Ronald Jenkees’ music video is a tour de force of colorful retro-style pixel art, created by animator Ben Luce of Soul Proprietor, who will use funds raised by fans of the video to support cancer research. From the new album Rhodes Deep. (Thanks Scott!)
Toronto outfit GlitchArtwork crafts each of these pieces of arcade and console game art by hand, painstakingly cutting and assembling their layers together into a 3-dimensional work of pixel art. Each framed work includes a glass cover not shown in the images.
Animator Paul Robertson created this awesome pixelated version of the intro from Rick and Morty. We’re hoping there’s a dimension like this and they’ll do a whole episode there. Maybe they can address the whole “it’s not 8-bit, it’s 16/32/64-bit” argument once and for all.
