so you’ll recall that the designer who put together the cover of my forthcoming book, rise of the videogame zinesters, felt that the best way to visually evoke the book’s message that game creation is for everyone was by covering the cover with lots and lots of pixel faces. you may also recall when i stupidly took lots and lots of work on myself by telling my publisher to let me illustrate the faces myself. drawing 32×32 pixel faces, i was able to cover the entire book with 17 rows of 12 characters each – meaning two hundred and four little pixel people total, a month’s work.
i’m really proud of how it turned out. so proud that i want to put it on your wall.
EVERYONE is a 12.25 by 17.25 inch glossy print. 204 smiling, grimacing, leering or hmming faces in bright pretty yellow and magenta. this print looks really gorgeous in person. and i’ve got a hundred of them – maybe one has your name on it? you can order them at my new online store. the price of the print includes shipping, but IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES, i ask that you buy the “world” version, which is five dollars extra, to account for the added cost of shipping internationally. it’ll arrive in a cardboard tube which you can then make into a super-long tunnel for your hamster or a maypole for kittens, or you can just hit people with it.
here at anna manor i’ve got some big-ass mouths to feed, including my own, so buying a print will help me stay afloat until i start seeing royalties from the book. and of course it’ll make the world and your home a more beautiful place. CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE PRINT SHOP DELUXE!
