Here are some details on the artist’s career:
I’ve been creating Pixel Art since I first tried it in 1984 and never stopped doing it. I’ve created quite a bit of Pixel Art in the last few decades for lots of fun videogame projects on many popular game systems like ‘Lionheart (Amiga), Flink (Sega Megadrive), Adventures of Lomax (PSone), Harry Potter a/t COS (Gamecube, 3DS), Spyro 4 (Gamecube / Xbox), Contra 4 (3DS), Mighty Switch Force (3DS / Wii), Shantae (3DS / Wii) to name a few. Most of my career I’ve been self-employed and producing high quality work to earn a living with already over 32 published games.
Now this, It’s been over 20 years now since I had a project of my own. Throughout the years I produced artwork form many other cool projects. Right now i’m gradually creating my dream project next to my other professional jobs. I’m spending as much time as i can on it right now. I’m collaborating with a very talented coder on this project and it’s going to be awesome! Lots of more info on the project will be inside.
