Pixel Hail #1


I'm proper chuffed to have had this recent job (a comic to promote Doublesix Games' comedic PS3 slaughterfest "Burn Zombie Burn") included in an exhibition of videogame inspired art running this weekend as part of the Brighton Festival:

Public opening:

23rd May 2009 09:00-18:00
24th May 2009 at 09:00-18:00

Brighton Fishing Museum
Kings Road Arches
Brighton, United Kingdom

For three days, the annex of Brighton’s Fishing Museum will be taken over by a multimedia exhibition of art from, and inspired by, videogames. Award-winning videogames artists will exhibit alongside artists who’s creations are inspired in someway by the world’s largest entertainment industry: videogames.

I love how it's in a fishing museum. Should be good; check it out if you're in the vicinity!

  1. awesome work, nelson! may i ask what you used to colour this -- i'm tempted to think traditional media, but i expect i'm wrong...

  2. Cheers! :) It's 100% Photoshop, Wilbur. Weirdly enough I was trying to make it look overtly digital but it all went horribly wrong.

  3. Cool. Sounds like an interesting exhibition. So why did I not know about this? being a concept artist for the games industry you'd think I'd have heard. Ah well.
    Not that I like games, but I love the concept art :-)

  4. As luck would have it there's a Pixel Hail #2 coming up in July to coincide with Develop - this one's a bit of a dry run for that, I think. I can put you in touch with the organisers if you like, Andrew?
