I just finished watching Inception and kept waiting for Jareth to be waiting at the bottom of the dream, singing and dancing around.

This was done in the style of my 8 Bit Dreams series which will be showing at the Light Grey Art Lab on Sep20th.

Captain America

My redesign of Captain America.
I’m a big fan of the scale mail on classic Cap, but as a whole, I think he’s a pretty awful costume design. I think those super patriot flag costumes always look really cheesy in the worst possible way. I tried to strike a balance between him being a superhero, and a soldier, with those elements kind of nestling amongst one another. He’s really a soldier first, who just happens to be super. They army dress him up a bit silly to boost morale and scare off the enemy.

I imagine he’d be keen to use all of his familiar weapons from the war, although I imagine Tony Stark would give them a good seeings to, so they could actually contend with the challenges of the 21st century.

campbell whyte thor

I recently watched all the Marvel universe films in pretty quick succession, so I have those ridiculous things on my brain. This is my redesign of Thor. It’s not really meant to be for the screen, more the page. I wanted Thor to be more mystical, cosmic and a little bit scary.

The trimming of his cape is made of clouds, the lining, and his visible body is a cosmic projection, his eyes are stars, A mane of golden hair swirls constantly and his face, too beautiful for human eyes, is masked.

In preparing for the upcoming exhibition of 8 Bit Dreams illustrations at Light Grey Art Lab, I felt inspired to knock out a few more illustrations. This one features the star of Anita Sarkeesian’s hypothetical game The Legend of the Last Princess.

I’m a big fan of Sarkeesian’s work, and you can see the Princess excerpt from her larger Tropes Vs Women series below.

fangamer x attract mode campbell whyte web

I’m pretty thrilled to reveal my new print for the upcoming Fangamer X Attractmode even that’s happening in Seattle on August the 31st. Please click the above image for a much larger version.

Last year I created this Animal Crossing print, depicting the most diabolical of boss battles.

With the theme of this years exhibition being “X”, I wanted to play with a bit of cross pollination of some of Nintendo’s prime franchises. See how many references, characters and creatures you can spot. You’ll be able to pick up prints from the Fangamer website after the exhibition opens.

UPDATEthe illustration is now available to purchase here.
