I haven’t given up drawing with a pen (quite the opposite), but I thought I’d post some pixel art game concept work that I don’t think is quite right (yet). The idea was to try making some pixel art backgrounds look more “hand-drawn”. I don’t think it’s the right approach for the game I’m working on with the other Pixelgrams team, but it is something I will pursue on a personal project if I get the opportunity.

Work has taken me back to Vilnius again this week. Today is my last day before heading home. I really like this town. It’s just the right size, with just the right level of busy-ness.
