  • Woah, awesome work.

  • Sue

    Insane! Really good. Love the subtle details of the different colored cubes.

  • joey

    three dimensional pixel art!

  • Are those sugar cubes? These are blowing my mind! Organic pixel art.

  • what’s it made out of?

  • AC

    The phoenix is incredible! What’s it made of?

    • Steve

      Haha, I think it’s actually a peacock, and the material is supposed to be wood.

      Reminds me of Jenga pieces, I love the fox.

      • I think AC is referring to the flames-in-a-cage when zhe referenced the phoenix.

  • Kira

    I really idea of using an organic material like wood to make digital-esque art… So clever!

  • Kira

    Really LIKE. Sorry.

  • mp

    They look like sugar cubes…

  • Wow, very cool. The vultures picking apart the typewriter is very smart. Great work

  • Steve

    Also, if they were sugar cubes how were they coloured? I’m pretty sure it would dissolve if he used any sort of wet substance to colour them (ie. ink, paint etc.)
