I am Italo, aka Italiux.
I am a graphic designer and illustrator from Peru with over 10 years of work experience, and gamer for more than 20.
I LOVE videogames. My passion for them began when I got my first NES and kept on growing throughout the years. That passion and dedication inspired me when I began to illustrate professionally.
Many of you have probably already seen a lot of my work based on video games, and hopefully already have some t-shirt with my designs.
A few months ago, I decided to start working with pixels as a way to reminisce that nostalgic time when pixels and an apparent simplicity where the main focus of all video games.
The first people to judge my work were my friends, obviously, whom are gamers. I, then, shared it on social media and it had an excellent response, and that was how the idea to design the collection Monsters was born.
Such collection will include all 151 characters from generation 1, not only in pixels, but also complemented with my personal style, and last but not least put it them on an awesome poster.
The essence of the project is the launch of a limited set of posters (18 x 24 inches), on art paper of 150 g/m2, full color and excellent print quality. This, in order to capture every pixel of the 151 monstruon that you will find numbered an arranged in their original order. Moreover, as part of a limited edition, exclusive of Kickstarter, every single poster will be signed and numbered by hand by me.
Here are the ones that i've already pixelated.
In order to be able to launch a first batch I need your support. Each character must be redesigned following my style, and later on turned into pixels. That process takes a lot of time because it has to be done pixel by pixel, and on top of that, I have to repeat it 151 times. Some of them take me about an hour to make, but there are more complex ones that take me more than that.
I estimate that it will take me a month to make them dedicating myself fulltime to the design of the characters.
For all these reasons, I turn to you so together we can make it a reality.
If the kickstarter is successfully founded, I would send you, each week, the progress of the pixelated monsters. In that way, you, who would hopefully be my backers, will be able to follow step by step the design and diagraming process of the poster.
Check out all the cool rewards!
Please share this Project with your friends.
Thanks so much for your time!
