MOST RECENT

I came home to some adorably unexpected mail. A long while ago I'd ordered the Steven Universe vinyl set from @iam8bit. There were some production issues, but eventually, all was well and they shipped them out. Now some time has passed since then, and I received this little bonus bundle from them today. I HAVE A LETTER FROM ROSE QUARTZ AND A CRYSTAL GEM FLAG AND I AM EMOTIONAL. This is what we call the cherry on top, nerdz. Thank you so much, @iam8bit! This package made my day! ☺️ #stevenuniverse #wearethecrystalgems #whatanicetouch #extramile #cartoonnetwork #iam8bit #crystalgems #believeinsteven

Over here tearing up because #iam8bit sent me a Rose Quartz flag 😭❤️❤️ #stevenuniverse

I’m loving this surprise #stevenuniverse #rosequartz #flag #iminshock #iam8bit

One hell of a surprise #stevenuniverse #iam8bit #yay #crystalgems

Something interesting came in the mail today I’ll have a video up about it soon on Instagram #stevenuniverse #iam8bit #suprise

This is a pretty simple one. I thought mario looked like a curry pie sliding down this hill. The interesting thing about the sprite is that it’s presence in mario 3 was actually never meant to be seen. And to get the sprite to apprear in game you have to collect the hammer brothers suitnpower up while already sliding down a hill otherwise mario goes into his crouched hammer brother sprite instead of the slide sprite. A small piece of trivia but I pointed it to highlight the sprite that got forgotten.
Also if ou are in southern Oregon area next month I’m going to have a booth at medowlarke comic con. It’s my first booth ever to sell paintings and I’m very nervous come say hi that would be cool

So I made myself a Hero of Time cassette. In between all the satan worshipping and weird horror movie soundtracks, I do enjoy myself with something lighter, and more beautiful. The soundtrack from Ocarina of Time will forever stand as the most perfect video game soundtrack of all time, and it brings me nothing but joy and nostalgia. Here, on Hero of Time, its re-recorded by Eric Buchholz and the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, making it more beautiful than it ever was. I have ever since I was a child had this weird passion for cassette tapes. I often record and print my own copies of albums I wish existed on cassette, so that my tape collection always is up to date. Allthough Hero of Time is not (and probably never will be) released on cassette officially, there is a CD and Vinyl version of it. Don't know who released the CD, but the vinyl was put out by iam8bit. Thats also where i stole the cover art.
NOTE: This is NOT a bootleg, this is a custom made tape by myself, for myself. And its NOT for sale 🤣 Kudos to iam8bit for releasing it on LP!

This may be the one of the best birthday gifts I ever received. The music of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time composed by Koji Kondo and performed by the 64 piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra on 180 gram serious vinyl. It’s album art is by Ryan Brinkerhoff. This game was, and still remains into adulthood, a major highlight of my childhood. It’s difficult to think how after only a short period I am able to appreciate and enjoy things now, to appreciate beauty and art. I am so fortunate to have someone to share these things with now. Nora @nora.ballard my love, whom without ever asking or I ever mentioning, knew this is exactly what I wanted. I was and still am, even while writing this, am moved to tears by this gifts sentiment. To have someone in my life to walk with, to take on the world with and to share beautiful things with, was something I never thought was possible because I am trans. I am so happy I was completely wrong and now have the freedom to be myself and live my life without fear, without hesitation and most importantly to move in stride with love and purpose. Today may just be my 31st birthday, but to me it is my first true birthday. One that I can celebrate as myself. With the love and acceptance of my friends, family and a strong community surrounding me. -Taylor #records #vinyl #180gram #legendofzelda #ocarinaoftime #legendofzeldaocarinaoftime #nintendo #iam8bit #recordcollection #gifts #nostalgia #music #love #transgendercouple #lesbiansuperpowers

Great game. Great soundtrack.
That fast paced bebop.
Three, two, one, let's jam!

‘What Remains of Edith Finch’ is an exceptional work and my favorite game of 2017. Yes in a year that offered us a joyful ‘Odyssey,’ the wonders of the ‘Horizon’ and a ‘Breath of the Wild’ ‘Edith Finch’ stood apart. Why? Because it was a game that brought out the emotions in me and I honestly don’t experience that enough in gaming today. ‘What Remains’ is the strange and tragic tale of the Finch family whose members have all come to untimely deaths. You experience the story through the eyes of the last Finch, Edith, who has returned to her elaborate and empty family home in the woods of the Washington Coast. Through your exploration of the whimsical house you learn the tales of your late family through gameplay vignettes, each unique in scenario and style. One allows you to take control of various animals like an eagle, a shark and then a sea monster. Another has you flying a kite during a massive storm while another is a fantasy RPG that evolves as you play. The gameplay of these vignettes is almost like poetry, masterfully conveying who these people were and what was going on in their minds before their sudden deaths. It can be darkly funny one moment and painfully sad the next while remaining consistently beautiful and touching. The copy pictured was another stellar physical release from @iam8bit which I grabbed as soon as I was able. If you’re looking for an experience that’s a little more mindful and could use a break from the usual chaos of video games then I can’t recommend this enough.

ET movie poster for Oakmont Theater. I did a series of posters for this local theater a while ago. I drew this one on the plane to LA for my Notebook Nerd show at @iam8bit . When I landed, I dropped this off at the gallery so they could scan it, frame it, and sell it at the opening.
.
ET is one of the first movies that I remember seeing in a theater. My grandmother came with us and loved the movie the rest of her life. She also loved Christmas Vacation.

So contrary to popular stupid disbelief on the internet the limited edition Street Fighter 2 30th anniversary cart didn't set my house on fire. It's just the vanilla SF2 game but is limited quantity to 5500 units. If you're a SF fan it's a nice little collectible - @iam8bit have really gone to town on the packaging a widgits in the box.

Today my Hyper Light Drifter vinyl arrived. Have been listening to my digital copy since it was released on Steam and absolutely love it that I had to buy it physical. #hyperlightdrifter #indiegame #ps4 #xboxone #pc #steam #playstation #xbox #iam8bit

For this month’s #copiccolors challenge I chose to draw Mega Man, his typical 3 color palette fit perfectly. All I could think of was Chocolate when my package arrived! So happy to “get equipped” with these new colors!!!
