Mega Man

I had to take a break from making sprite shirts for a while to finish up my graduate degree. Making these shirts is very fun, though, so I got back to it soon after my thesis was done.


This one was made for a friend who likes robots, and this fellow was very cute. I can't remember what his name is as I didn't play too much Mega Man back in the day.

Super Mario Brothers 2


Look out Luigi! This is from Super Mario Brothers 2, aka Super Mario USA, aka Doki Doki Panic with Mario sprites. In the original Doki Doki Panic, Phanto looked much less menacing. This version scared me as a child.

This was the first time I put multiple sprites on one shirt. I made each pattern individually and then placed them on the same grid. The key was difficult as I couldn't find any images online of Luigi holding it. As a result I had to boot the game and see exactly where it was placed when picked up.
