I’m super honored to have been invited to participate in QPop’s “Bros vs Bros” art show, focusing on Super Mario Bros and the Shaw Bros. Growing up on Nintendo, I couldn’t pass up making fan art of some favorite foes turning the tables on Mario! Leave it to a koopa to put an unripe Yoshi egg in a [?] block.

Flash Web Design class == fun.
PUSH THE BUTTON!
Made this really quickly in my Flash Web Design class. Go go interactive Internet Memes! 😀
Animation Discs & Oldskool Gamerz
A 2D animator’s best friend– their animation disc– is quite a versatile tool.
One can use it as a pillow…
One can use it to soften the sun.
One can use it as a tray on which to eat…
Or, more than anything, one can bring flat drawings to LIFE with the help of its pegbars and smooth, semi-opaque surface! (All the while, losing sleep, not getting outside to see the sun, and forgetting to eat).
You and I live a full 24 frames a second. We may even think every action in 24 frames a second! 2D is alive and will never die so long as our friend, the animation disc, is around.
(Which isn’t to say that 2D is impossible through computers… But the satisfaction of bringing paper to life is unrivaled!)
Consider yourself a king of the arcade?
Do you exchange your pennies for quarters at the bank?
Or would you consider throwing an all-Atari pizza party?
Perhaps the sight of these buttons induced oldschool gamer flashbacks.
In the event that any of the above statements apply to you, look no further: you’ve found the button set designated for you!
