Attention Skyrim fans: this nerd mashup is available for only a few more hours at Tee Fury. The design is inspired by my love of the most amazing game in recent history and one of the greatest animated comedy shows of all time.
I’ve known/known of Mike Mitchell for quite a few years now. He’s a great example of where long hours and dedication can get you. Mitchell was responsible for creating the digital painting of Conan O’Brien that sparked the Team Coco brand. He is an outstanding portrait painter and has a knack for giving a visual voice to current affairs and pop culture trends. Mitchell has done work for popular TV stars Rainn Wilson, as well as Aziz Ansari.
I specialize in apparel design and custom illustration but I have recently started exploring pixel art and sprite animation. I am also dabbling in pop culture illustrations and designs. When I’m not doing either of those, I’m honing my concept art skills and illustrating and creating fantastical and whimsical characters and paintings.
I came across Andy Helm’s work shortly after I had started posting my Star Wars pixel art up on the web. Helms is an illustrator and pixel artist himself, often pulling inspiration from Star Wars and popular video games.
My first experience with Fun leadsinger Nate Ruess came in the form of The Formats’ Interventions and Lullabies. I bought it on a whim and couldn’t have been more pleased. Highlights off that album for me were Tune Out and On Your Porch. After releasing a second album, Dog Problems, The Format disbanded and formed Fun. Their first album, Aim and Ignite, was amazing, and they have returned in full force with Some Nights. Check out the track, We Are Young [watch video below], a really addictive song.
I literally JUST stumbled across Ryan Andrew’s work fairly recently, and was absolutely blown away. He is an illustrator and comic book artist, who dabbles in pixel art. His amazing Star Wars pixel renditions are what initially lured me in to view the rest of his work. I recommend reading his web comic title, Sarah and the Seed, beautifully illustrated and a really emotional and heart-warming story.
