About a month ago I put Retronator on a little break to focus on applying to graduate school. As some of you know, I moved from Europe to the US two years ago. Right now my stay here is tied to my work visa, but I’m exploring other options to be able to stay here and also be able to invest myself full-time in art and consequently more work on Retronator.
So I’ve been applying to graduate school to a couple Master programs in Fine Arts and Art+Tech(+Education) based PhDs. It’s a pretty demanding process that takes all my free time, so I apologize for the lack of pixel art updates in the mean time. At the moment I’ve completed half of my applications so I’ll be able to start posting at least a little bit again.
You might find one of my applications interesting, since it touches on a lot of things I want to do with Retronator. If you remember my 100 day pixel art project Illustrapedia, it was pretty much an introduction to my long-term goal, which is to do an interactive, illustrated encyclopedia. Illustrapedia is pretty much the project I’m pitching to universities to do as my Thesis.
I also designed a sleek portfolio webpage that I might at some point convert into a proper tumblr theme for any other artists out there. It makes viewing my artworks a very colorful experience.
Last, my personal statement includes a huge infographics with the history of my creative output.
All in all, lots of Retronator related goodies, which you can see in my application to UC Boulder on my personal tumblr here:
