Curious on how the two artists’ distinct styles were going to meld to create a new piece of art, Javier sketched an initial idea to incorporate Katy’s character illustrations into his universe and the design immediately reminded her of an arcade machine. Crypto Combat was realized!

Featuring the infamous ethereum and bitcoin cryptocurrency as Mortal Kombat style fighters and the $whale currency as an homage to the well known crypto art collector, Whaleshark, Javier’s visual toy invites you to imagine selecting one of these fighters into combat. In the machine’s screen, every frame was painted by Katy and put together beautifully by Javier’s incredible animation and FX work. Of course, the fun goes far beyond the screen. Javier’s signature never-a-dull-moment intricate design makes this arcade machine completely unlike any other.

Created in collaboration with Katy Arrington.

I absolutely love this piece! not only is it super dynamic, insanely detailed in your style that is so epic, it really makes me want to play it!
It has a super strong nostalgia that hits deep with me. I played a lot of the street fighter and mortal combat style games growing up, and my son now also loves those classics.
In fact he wants to be an anime and manga artist, when i show him this one I know he will be blown away. Thanx in advance for inspiring my son to continue with his artisitc dreams, I know this will inspire him as it does myself.
peace

Thanks a lot! lovely comment. I understand nostalgia, I feel it too. I would love to see your son face when he sees the Visual Toy, hopefully he likes it, inspires him and continues creating. Thank you very much again for such a nice comment. Send him a greeting from Katy and me.
