Some Ideas about Pastel + Pixel
Updated: Sep 29, 2021
I am obsessed with a style recently, trying to design various Pastel + Pixel works. The Pastel style, reminding me of the 19th-century Impressionist artist Edgar Degas' ballerina, and the Pixel style is going back to the Retro Game of the 1980s. The combination of these two styles feels nostalgic, energetic, and romantic.
When I first started artwork with a computer, I began to do pixel art with Photoshop. Today I just found a pixel work (StarCraft II Pixel Art) from ten years ago when I organized my files. Back then, because I liked the game so much, I spent a lot of time playing it and drew this pixel art with beginner skills.
Then I started learning Illustrator and Sketch. I have been thinking about presenting virtual and beautiful things in physical form in daily life. So I started turning my designs into merchandise.
My latest project is Pastel + Pixel works, including necklaces, bag Charm/key chain, and art print. And I hope that my work can make people feel the joy of childhood and the romance of the moment.
