Gordon Freeman, renowned theoretical physicist with a PHD in “Applied Crowbar / Cranial Relativity” and silent protagonist of Valve’s "Half Life" series, now given the ol’PixelBlock super-duper update.

Why two versions? Honestly, I couldn’t decide which shoulder variant I preferred. I’m that tired.

Requested Anonymously.

Adam Jensen, the gruff’n’tough  Sarif Industries security officer from rather excellent open world cyberpunk thriller Deus Ex : Human Revolution, now given a certifiably improved pixel update from last time.

He may not have asked for this update, but I’m fairly sure he won’t mind.

The Drifter - mysterious wandering protagonist of the ambitious and exceptionally goshdarn pretty hack-n-slasher "Hyper Light Drifter", now given a little PixelBlock-style makeover.

Requested a long time ago by Mike. 

Sorry Mike : )

The Kestrel, old workhorse of the Federation Spacefleet and the Rebel flagship-fighting, pirate-hunting and space spider-exploding main ship from acclaimed indie title "FTL : Faster Than Light", now given it’s own heavily derezzed 44 x 28 pixel demake.

I’ve also taken some time to work on my presentation - whaddya think ? Too fancy ?


A little while ago I was asked by a DOTA 2 Twitch livestreamer / rather nice chap named “Pingeee” to create a set of four little exclusive “Emote” icons for subscribers to his channel - and since it was finished I thought it might be a nice idea to show them off here on the blog too !
Each one is designed to fit inside a tiny 28 x 28 pixel square - and even though i had to squish down a lot of detail, I think they still turned out pretty swell in the end. Heck, I might even have to do a few more for myself …

I’ve been quiet for a little while, and i thought I’d show why - I was recently tasked with designing some illustrations for a HR trade magazine article (no naming names just yet), and so I unfortunately was a “bit” sidetracked - to say the least.

Still, I thought some of you might be interested to see what became of it all - not everything made it into the final print 100% intact, but since this is my very first publication job I’m feeling pretty proud.

And yes, I even gave the IT crowd an updated little appearance too :)

Hope you all like it !

It might be a little late for a Mothers Day post, but it is never too late for cake.

Hope you enjoyed yourselves !

I realised recently that I tend to actually use words quite a bit in my posts, so I figured it might be a good idea to work up some sort of “Official” font stylesheet rather than drawing it out all the time.

Let me know what you think of it !

I thought I’d take the opportunity to show off one of the projects I kept myself busy with whilst I was incommunicado - a rather large pixelated “Summer” landscape for a small website background.
I found it pretty challenging, especially since it deals with something much larger than a 40 x 40 canvas. It’s not something I do very often, but when I do - I think it turns out pretty decent.
(This landscape has been posted here with the permission of the client and has been watermarked, so please don’t go stealing it. It’ll be very naughty, and Gryffindor will lose at least 20 house points.)
