While American Pixels itself is still in it’s final stages of development for a 2012 release, Mazedude has a great pre-order EP at the ready to satiate your desires for some of the best remixing of American made video game compositions of the last three decades. The entirely chip-tune EP is called Star Spangled Chips and is yours FREE with the pre-order of American Pixels.
Where do I tie into all this? Well I’ve been friends with Mazedude since the fledgling days of OneUp Studios in the early 2000′s and our friendship has also grown into a working relationship. Mazedude is not only a great composer but also a very talented web designer and creative thinker. He and I have collaborated on web designs and album art several times now. American Pixels and Star Spangled Chips are no different!
For SSC, Mazedude wanted a Big Daddy from Bioshock in near complete silhouette holding an American flag. “Can you do that?” he asked a few weeks ago to which I replied “CAN I do that!?”
I banged out a rather swank ink drawing right away, and had a TON of fun doing so! I’ve recently acquired a new brush and this was my first chance to really test how fine a line I could get out of it in the cross-hatching on the edges of the lit areas. I think it was a great success and I’m hopeful that the cover for American Pixels will be this and MORE! I’m super excited to get that one going.
