What do you see when the above pic strikes your ocular cavities? A bunch of horizontal colored lines, you say? Philistine. That white splotch with a red stripe is Ryu from the Street Fighter series’ victory pose. Wait, you don’t see it? Well, UK illustrator and SCE Europe UI artist Ashley Browning does, and now, so will you.
From his website, Browning says it’s a one-off piece, and a departure from the usual Videogame Minimalism pieces that he’s known –and oft-imitated- for. “
This time, the idea was to go really, really basic. Initially, it felt like a Bauhaus/De Stijl inspired piece, but once it was finished, it also looked like the primitive graphics from Atari 2600 or Intellivision consoles.”
The keen t-shirt buyers among you can wear this image proudly on their chest if you hit MySoti.com. The rest of us are either just cultureless buffoons or jive ass turkeys. Either or.
