A bit of a stylistic sidestep at the request of Playboy AD Robert Harkness. He asked me to try my hand at pixel art to illustrate a piece about the strange subculture of video game marathoners, who compete for astronomical high scores on classic arcade machines, sometimes playing for days at a time. This fantastic documentary on the subject has apparently inspired a new generation of challengers.
BTW hats off to anyone who works in pixel art regularly. It’s crazy tough.
