And here it is…all drawn 1 pixel at a time using the most excellent ProMotion from the most excellent Jan Zimmerman & Cosmigo!

Unfortunately due to licensing regulations that are tighter than tight things wrapped in latex rubber, shrink wrapped, re-squeezed and then cling filmed to the extreme, this humble image can never be used anywhere without permission from some man in a suit who works for FIFA.(Commercially anyway)

So I thought I would donate it to my blog and give it an airing for bit, poor thing has been stuck in my footy art folder for ages..

Still not all is lost,  I have a growing collection of pixel designs for various shirts and other suitably worthy attire waiting to be finished so there! This concluded this rather pointless yet mildly satisfying post to my blog. Good day to you all.

Argh me hearties it be that time of the year when all that swashbuckling and rum drinking be a taking over the erm… well you get me meaning… My son is playing Lego Pirates of the Caribbean at the moment on the XBOX 360. So I thought I would post a few animations I did of Jack Sparrow ‘pixel stylee!!’ just to bring them out for a few rounds on the screen before retiring them back in the old stuff folder.

Now then me dears these grafs (techie term that) were originally created for an official game of the movie . Unfortunatly said game didn’t quite make it past the galley before being abruptly shoe horned off the ship via a very short plank..Sploshee Splash… Plop!

So I did this interview recently for Retro Gamer magazine where I answered a few questions about my days at Sensible Software and the joys to be had creating art on the wonderful Commodore Amiga.

Issue 94: Art Attacktasticles!!!

Come to think of it the interview isn’t that recent now but just like the good old London buses you wait ages for one and two come along, so not only am I in the 94th issue of Retro Gamer I’ve also just given an interview for GamesTM who are doing a feature on us  bods at Sensible Software.

I believe this issue of Retro Gamer is still available on back issue for the sum of £4.99 + P&P. 

It appers links from the original post are now outdated and no longer work so I’ve set up a page with scans of the articles mentioned. For now here’s some thumbnails to look at while the page goes live….Issue 94: Art Attacktasticles!!!
