Our precious pixels are influencing the runways and furniture. What a glorious time to be alive.
This just give me an idea for some bleach dither patterns I can make with stencils.
What about if I make pixel themed clothing or paintings?
I'm a pixel artist. Is my attempt at creating pixels in other mediums some kind of ploy on nostalgia?
Or do I just enjoy grid based artwork?
I don't think it's particularly cool to deny the freedom of homage to the masses just because you happen to be well-acquainted with the source material. Theoretically my medium is unlimited too--I work in Photoshop, no one is forcing me to anti-alias anything--so does this mean that my work is also just ignorance in the disguise of nostalgia?
And in the case of the non-digital mediums we're seeing here, why do we have perceive this as something hidden under a cloak of nostalgia, rather than genuine nostalgia without fetters? Whatever the reasons for pixel art's existence, I don't see any reason for us to ridicule being intrigued by and fond of its aesthetic and wanting to interpret that aesthetic into other forms, no matter how "false" that interpretation may seem to people who bend pixels every day. To deny that the look of pixel art denotes an era--to deny that the limitations of early digital media created a distinct cultural and chronological aesthetic--is the real ignorance here. Whether or not people actually know what 8-bit means is beside the point.
Wot DB said.
I loathe patethic "8-bit" homages imposed on unlimited mediums, it's nothing but ignorance in the disguise of nostalgia.
@Manu, fixed, thx. Poop badge sent your way XD
First I thought again, then I saw jal's link and I was all wow.
Bug report: contrary to PJ custom, the link opens in the same tab.
sort of reminds me of this: imgur.com/gallery/KouN8
Oh. My God. I need those shoes. Holy crap I have never wanted a pair of shoes this much in my life not even the fabled navy Chie oxfords with the cherry heel.
EDIT: Also, as a woman I feel compelled to note that runway fashion is not always meant to be wearable, not even the so-called Ready to Wear shows. Think of it like concept cars for clothes.
my butt is too round and frosty for that chair!
everything was cool but the cloth sucked
I guess the furniture is new.
I like the furniture but the clothes are weird.
If I had one of those pixel masks I'd wear it at all times - to bed, to job interviews, whenever.
Those fashion designers suck at pixelling.
This table is awesome. I'd buy that immediately.
