Sonic and Tails

"Sonic and Tails"

available HERE

For "Pixel Hearts" show at Gallery 1988, curated by Chogrin.

For this show, all the artists were given an identical wooden pixel heart canvas and asked to create a piece inspired by video games.  For mine I chose Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails because I really wanted to recreate them in my style.

Truth be told, I tried Sonic once at a friend's house as a child, but really I was a Nintendo girl!  Nevertheless it was really inspiring to recreate these characters and the heart panel was a fun, challenging space to work on, and very high quality.

The whole show looks awesome together!
