DefyAllLogic (Tavia) of The Game Fanatics, had a chance to e-meet and interview artist Francis Gordon.
Francis is an international pixel artist. Unlike most pixel artists, Francis doesn't use a computer. He creates his grids using a regular pencil and maps out his colors by eye. Once he's gridded, mapped, and outlined, he paints neatly within the lines with oils or acrylics and a paint brush.
When he's finished there are beautiful pop-art paintings depicting some of 8-bit gaming's favorite characters.
