Inspired by studying software from the mid 1980's, to video games of the early 1990's. Influenced by the wonderful pixel artists of today. All artwork is drawn tabula rasa. Please let me know if any designs resemble the work of others.

Artwork and files created using ABSpriteEditor. Patterns tested and refined using ASE, bitsy and Pulp. Data tweaking in LibreOffice. Image wrangling with ImageMagick, compressed with OptiPNG and pngslim, and metadata added with ExifTool.

Special thanks to @castpixel, @dw817, @felipemanga, @gingerbeardman, @javl, @le-doux, @lexaloffle, @MrBlinky, @Pharap, @pmwasson, @scotthall92, @TPS.
