Back to Basics

OK, SVI ZNAMO za momka koji je pixel art razvio do krajnjih sumanutih granica. E-BOY i njegovi pixel gradovi sad su vec noseci deo poznatih svetskih kampanja.



Malo manje poznati i takodje pixel art oriented su Japanci koji se zajedno zovu DELAWARE. Njih cetvoro prave multimedijalne aplikacije, muziku, bitmap grafiku i kojesta. Dnevne beleske, poruke ali i old master revivals. Evo npr. njihove Miloske Venere.



Ali! Mora da se zna ko je bio prvi. Jedna osoba povezuje E-boya, Delaware i mene. Susan Kare je zena koja dizajnira interfejs za sve nas krajnje korisnike. Prve ikonice je projektovala za Mac kompjutere, ona je zena koja je nacrtala Happy Mac, satic koji se pojavljuje dok kompjuter nesto radi i kantu za djubre. Izmedju ostalog. Ona je nacrtala pasijans za Microsoft. Radila za obe strane. To je tako kul.



I, kako vec znam biti impresionirama tim ranim, takoreci primitivnim kompjuterskim aplikacijama i njihovim ogranicenjima koja motivisu i daju cudesne rezultate za onoga ko prokljuvi tok i zna da pliva kuda voda nosi, podsecanje na MacPaint je ucinilo da, cisto mozganja i treninga radi, posle sto godina otvorim Windows-ov Paint sva srecna sto nekim cudom jos uvek postoji u sistemu i pored aktuelnog CS4 paketa... We've come a long way baby...

OK, I GUESS we all know about the guy that pushed pixel art to the sky high limits.
E-BOY and his pixel cities are now part of the huge corporations' campaigns.
Lesser known but stil big are also pixel art oriented Japanese guys (plus a girl) called
DELAWARE. Four of them are making different multimeadia apps, music, bitmap graphics, all sorts of thing. Daily notes, messages to the world, but also old master revivals. Here's one - their Venus de Milo.But! We all need to remember who was the first. There's one person E-boy, Delaware and me have in common. Susan Kare is the woman that still designes User Interface Graphics. She designed the original Mac icons, Happy Mac, the watch appearing when the computer's doing something, the trash bin. Among other things. She designed Solitaire for Microsoft. Worked both fronts. I love that.
And, the way I get all excited 'bout those early, so to speak primitive computer applications and their lovely limitations that motivate and give such great results to those who figure how to go with the flow, being reminded of MacPaint made me find and turn Windows' Paint on after a thousand years, all thrilled and not actually believing that ot is still a part of system available to us end users long after Photoshop's been invented and CS4 being current version... We've come a long way baby...
