HOT CHICKS AND MOVIES IN FLORESCENT 8-BIT
Another Castle is one of many unfinished projects I’ve had on the backburner. It first started about five or six years ago. The idea was to take original photos of girls in cosplay or cool outfits or whatever, turn it into pixel art with crazy colors to make it look like 8-bit graffiti or something, and then plop it on limited edition t-shirts.
The diamond logo was meant to be reminiscent of video games like Sonic or Final Fantasy where you have to collect different colored gems and crystals, but then Diamond Supply Co. became huge and I didn’t wan’t people to think I was jacking their steeze or whatever. I’m prety attached to the logo, but I guess I could just use the weird little castle-looking thingy in between the diamonds as a logo instead. Idunno.
The project never came to fruition because I’m unemployed as beans and rely on freelance video production jobs to pay the bills. Starting a brand. It turns out, starting a brand is pretty impossible without a decent amount of startup money. I thought about taking the idea to Kickstarter or something, but I’m super non-confident about pretty much every idea I come up with and get excited about.
I guess I’m shamelessly posting about it here to see if anyone else would be into it. Let me know by commenting, liking, or reblogging or whatever. We’ll see what happens.
Loving this clever pic by the one and only COMBO. Who remembers Ecco The Dolphin? Only version I ever played was the one for Game Gear and I never really liked it, but I’d play it for hours anyway.

Robot Masters Custom Light-Up NES
Console customizers Platinumfungi and Custom NES Guy whipped up this ballin’ backlit NES to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Mega Man. It features a sexy blue color scheme with Mega Man’s adorable 8-bit mug on the controllers and lid (and those blue buttons tho!), but the standout feature is the display of robot masters - and they light up!

Man’s Best Friend - Video Game Pets In real World Photos
Because cheesy stock photos of people with perfect lives could always use more 8-bit dogs from retro video games. This was done by Glauber Tanaka who has more real world mashups including everything from the Simpsons to Donkey Kong over on his Behance page.
In celebration of Chinese Ghost Month (August 7 - September 4 this year), ANO created this mural featuring Hsien-Ko from Darkstalkers in his signature pixelicious style complete with a ghostly image of the artist standing in front of his work.
