Inked using Inkscape’s ‘calligraphic’ pen on a tablet PC.
Some of the character from the original sketch has returned (but not all).
Drawn using Inkscape 0.48 on a Motion Computing tablet PC.
This is based on the previous pencil sketch. Note how the character of the work changes when the media changes. This prompts me to ponder the deeper mathematics of the universe. I’m also tempted to see if adding ink outlines could bring back some of the character in the original sketch.
Drawn using ‘pencil’ in ArtRage 2.6 on a Motion Computing tablet PC.
|This drawing marks my commemoration of the July 20, 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. (OK OK, the photo I drew from is actually astronaut Charles ‘Pete’ Conrad from the Apollo 12 mission from November of the same year. Still it’s a marvelous and iconic image, worthy of a my pixels.)|
I still remember the 70s and 80s with wide-eyed, take-a-step-back wonder: high-tops, Sony Walkmans, feathered hair, home computers and The Boss. And the movies: arguably not a golden age of cinema, the 80s were the birthplace of many of my all-time favourite flicks.
Here are a few 8bit pixel posters of some of my favourite 80s movies (ok, one of them is from the late 70s) – enjoy!
Sorry, these aren’t for sale given possible legal action by a certain guy named George.
After dreaming about this for months, this taxonomic reference to one of my most favoured games, Rogue, is now complete. It was university that introduced me to the vax, its dumb terminals and the game of Rogue. We gamers there survived the keyboard character graphics and monochrome to drop, floor by floor, down the dungeon battling all manner of baddies, loot and gear as we slunk closer to the Amulet of Yendor. Never did find it.

The (American VS Russian) Space Race has always fascinated me, even taking pride in having been alive (although festooned in diapers) for the July 1969 moon landing. The Mercury and Gemini programs that preceded my (newborn) existence are especially interesting in both technological and cultural ways.
Anyways, having read John Glenn’s biography I felt compelled to make this little drawing. The artwork was drawn using EDGE Touch on the iPod Touch and composited using Seashore on the Mac. The drop shadows were added to pop the pixel drawings from each other.
Godspeed, John Glenn.
