I ended up getting the framed Suicune cross-stitch and I'm IN LOVE. First of all it arrived incredibly quickly and it looks gorgeous in person. It now rests among my other Pokemon collectibles. Thank you kindly!
The Story of a Badger :)
I'm a 23 year old male from Ireland who has always been a fan of games for the Nintendo consoles. In 2009/2010 i became fascinated with pixels and created a lot of paintings of my favorite characters, sprites in their pixel styles from all of my favorite games. I branched out to other mediums and that's when I found Hama beads!
After making many beadsprites, (way too many to keep track of) people started asking me to make them their favorite characters out of these beads.
I set up this Etsy to better showcase the sprites i can make, and to help keep people who love old school games alive in ways that allow them to show it on their keys, on their fridges, and even on their walls.
This brings us to cross stitching which was a way of me overcoming the limit i had on the sizes of more detailed beadsprites (which were sometimes averaging a more than 1ft x 1ft in size!) and was allowing a higher quality product be able to be framed and hung around homes worldwide. I've come a long way since painting Pokemon Yellow Sprites on canvases in my bedroom, and i'm looking forward to where else this route to keep old school gaming alive through art will take me next!
Stay tuned for more!
Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to make for you, that isn't already on my shop. I love custom orders and people with an imagination! ;)
