Some people say, "Live your life like playing games!" It seems that I do live in such circumstances, literally.
Since childhood I have loved to play games. I'm a generation that grew up with NES, GameBoy, and SEGA Mega Drive. Some of my favorite games such as Paperboy (NES), Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town (GameBoy) and Contra Hard Corps (SEGA Mega Drive) are games with pixel art displays. Maybe that's why I have an emotional attachment to pixel art.
In 2022 I met Koko Julio at a board game session. It turns out that we have a few things in common: games and pixel art! Since then, we have been involved in several projects for the creation of Gather Town assets. At first I drew several types of pixel animals, like gorilla, camel, lion and kangaroo. Then, I also drew pixel cars, ancient buildings, and non-playable characters. Every day it feels like what we do is getting more challenging, fun and pixelated.
I'm curious, what kind of project will we do next...?
By the way, currently I work for a game-based learning company in Malang. You can contact me on Instagram @nonnapixel or my Ko-fi site here.
