Title of the art piece:
Remember the Dawn
I’ve always been drawing. It is one of the earliest things I remember, me in my room drawing. And even though I started like this it wasn’t until my mid 30s that I started doing Illustrations professionally.
I watched a lot of movies as a kid, especially ‘The Rescuers’. Later I can see that I use coloured lines instead of black, just like they did for Miss Bianca on that movie. Other influences includes Jim Henson’s Muppets and their use of bright colors.
As a kid I didn’t pay attention to who created what, but as an adult I can see that I also draw a lot of inspiration from Leiji Matsumoto.
His story with Pac-Man:
When I was a child, my first contact with video games was on a Pong Clone at a friends house. But my first contact with an actual arcade machine was a soccer club I came with my father. In the lobby was 4-5 machines. I only remember the Galaga and the Pac-Man. Today these two games still represent finest arcade art from era. Even today when I see Pac-man in any form, I remember that first time, when I saw cabinet with a game inside it.
The maze behind the piece
I tried a few designs that deviated from my usual style. They didn’t appeal to me at all.
I had to go back to my first memory of the game, to connect with the piece.
And then it struck me. That is was the dawn of a new era. Just as Kubrick depicted in 2001: A space odyssey.
To walk up and touch this whole new form of entertainment.
