Hi, I'm Drake.
snoop dogg gives off this vibe that he doesn’t really have a plan but he still knows exactly what he’s doing and like i strive for that
paul robertson, the popular pixel animator recently featured on popular kids show & tumblr favorite gravity falls, clearly has a huge woman problem and likes to draw cutesy racist pics of women being raped and murdered. If you have the stomach for a depiction of the murder mutilation and rape of racist caricatures of native women, google his name + “custers revenge” and try and convince yourself that this dude should be getting any kind of work, not to mention working on children’s media.
I don’t have much commentary on him making that work, but I would like to note that it’s part of a series of depictions of atari and nintendo-era videogames, of which Custer’s Revenge is one (which was, I believe, the first game to get a “DO NOT SELL TO MINORS” warning due to sex and racist themes).
It’s important to put into context. The original game had a white man who had to cross a desert and rape a native woman. Robertson’s work instead shows Custer as a (suitably) hideous monster.
I have a problem with people that have a problem with Paul Robertson. People that are obviously unfamiliar with his past works. You come to expect a lot of pop-y, trippy (I mean really trippy), colorful, nostalgic, or downright disturbing and/or sexual things from the guy. You fucking idiots make it sound like the dude straight-up created the Custer’s Revenge sprite as some kind of great tribute to a game he loves. Uh. No. He created it for an ART SHOW. An ART SHOW that he’s made other sprite art for in the past. If anything, he’s condemning the game through the metaphor of the Custer-Monster while still acknowledging it as a piece of gaming history in the artwork itself.
I see why people are upset.
But they’re being upset for the sake of being upset at this point.
And that’s fucking stupid.
