8sy BITsy Monster

Andrew Neal recently introduced me to a great new art challenge called 8sy BITsy Monsters. It was created by Bec of Ginseng & Honey, & quickly adopted by a whole bunch of Tumblr artists because really, it's just too much fun!

Bec created a bunch of 8-bit monsters, then set the challenge to interpret them in full-res illustrations. This one (below) caught my eye because it made me think of Edward Lear. So here's my first contribution-- I feel sure there will be more!

  1. I want this monster to be on my side :)

  2. I'm always learning about new art challenges and art communities from your blog. How wonderful to be connected this way to so many creative communities!

  3. He is adorably dapper! I love the soft purple dappled jacket. And the stylish shoes. Wonderful imagining of the original teeny pixels!
