From the Studio

Posted by Stobie at 12:00 pm



It’s been a long time since I posted anything here, and even longer since I regularly posted here.

Today I say goodbye to my regular job in order to pursue creative projects and try living as a freelancer for a while. Is it a good idea?  There’s plenty of success stories and countless tales of failure. But there’s no reward without risk. Over the next 4 months I’ll be traveling back to Australia to live temporarily whilst networking, finishing projects (such as my game Rising Dusk which I hope to talk about more here,) and try and make it in the big wide world. After that I’ll be making a quick stop in America before heading back to Japan.

The game is set and the stakes are high, but with a lot of hard work and a little luck maybe we will have the right hand.

On another note, the next album from my band Ai Robot will be releasing on April 30th. Keep an eye out for that.

“ArtBoy Gallery is pleased to invite you to “PIXELS” the first pixel-centric, solo exhibition by super awesome artist Lukas Stobie.

The Tokyo-based Melbourne artist, filmmaker and musician is one of the most prolific artists on the scene and has never been content with being confined to one medium.

He frequently combines these mediums resulting in numerous illustrations, albums, music videos, comics and games. Most notably his pixel art SUPER series, which includes Super Mighty Boosh, Super Game of Thrones and the viral sensation Super Breaking Bad.

PIXELS features work inspired by TV, movies, games, music and that sometimes-fictional place called real-life, all drawn pixel by pixel.
The exhibition includes all of STOBIE’S classic SUPER series, (part Retro Game, part Where’s Wally?,) a playable demo of the game RISING DUSK, and an opening night performance by Ai Robot. “

To prepare for the exhibition starting today I’m doing a ’20 Days of Pixels’ countdown via Studio Stobie with a different pixel related post each day, to coincide with the Opening Night Party on April Friday 29th 6 – 8pm.
