Pixel Graffiti

One of the great video games ever is 'Bruce Lee' for the Commodore 64. Luckily you can still play it thanks to people other than me. I just put the characters on the wall with spray paint. I thought doing it one pixel at a time seemed more appropriate while allowing for more improvisation. Hopefully soon I will do something more complex. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe one of my plants.

The graphics in the game seemed to use full and half size pixels. I cut out some accordingly.










I always thought the ninja guy was the worst in the game. It makes me feel bad for him. I figured I could give him a bike (my bike) to help.

Word Search for Iraqi Cities

Matchbooks from Japanese Strip Clubs

Some gentleman traveled to Japan and Taiwan, visited plenty of strip clubs, smoked, and returned home with some matches to spare.
