Featured Curator of the Week: Philip Intile [@pi-slices]

Ivan Dixon, known as pug-of-war, is a 25 year old Melbourne based animator, pixel artist, illustrator and game maker. He started creating pixel art at the age of 12 because he wanted to make games and to do that he needed art. Ivan co-runs an animation studio where he spends most of his day drawing or planning new projects. To let off steam, he creates short, looping pixel art GIFs. He likes work that involves characters, narrative and humour and is inspired by other artists, musicians, television, film and real life situations. To make his art, Ivan uses a program specifically designed for pixel art called GraphicsGale.

Philip (@pi-slices) has written this kind post about my pixel art for Cross-Connect.
