Blinky 'The Nerd' - Full Text Poster (A5 Size)

Yay! Blinky the Nerd. I made an icon for Johnie and his MAME Library application that featured Blinky the ghost from Pacman hovering over some game screenshots.

 

Later, talking to Johnny and getting to see him, he wore these kind of thick 'nerdy' (but trendy) glasses. This got me thinking what would happen if I put a pair on Blinky form the original?

 

I set about doing this afterwards as a kind of illsutration project for myself. Produce a different icon and then an illustration.

 

I showed it to Johnny and he went nuts, fell in love with it, and a huge A1 poster size version sits in his design studio in Edinburgh!

 

Unfortunately he hasn't updated the app yet to include the new icon.

 

I'll update more of this work at a later date.
