A new concept, I've decided to collect a number of my "sprites" from various fictional video games, supposedly produced in the 1980s, into a digital trading card series! I grew up in the 1970s and '80s, when video games were NEW and exciting, and I've loved the artwork associated with video games since I first discovered them. In addition, films, like TRON (1982) and THE BLACK HOLE (1979) and NIGHTMARES (1983), with those early computer and computer inspired graphics, were massive influences on my style---and my perceptions of what "the Future" was supposed to look like!

This particular beastie is an Information Officer, in charge of the waves of craft attacking a human space station in a standard, drop-from-the-sky game (in the style of SPACE INVADERS or GALAGA.) To me, this is all very funny...
