Laundrylights is an online pixel art platform. Let’s meet the artists behind this amazing artwork.
Tell me about yourself?
I’m a pixel artist and musician from Argentina. I also love videogames and almost any artistic expression with a good story behind.
Tell me about your work experience?
I make pixel drawings and post it in my IG account. Besides that, I’ve made an EP under the name Leaph, named “Eastern Souvenirs”. I did not worked in a game development project, but i’d love to do it.
At what age did you start doing work and developed a love for artwork?
Ummm, I’ve always been interested in almost any form of art: I play guitar and love singing since I was a kid, in my adolescence I had developed a big interest for literature and writing. But I started drawing in 2019 and I found a big comfort in pixel art.
How did you develop a fondness for artwork?
I’ve played games like Monkey Island & Day of the Tentacle when I was a kid. When i discovered pixel art, I was very fond of it because of the enormous presence of that kind of artwork style during my childhood. And having the chance of make it by myself was kind of awesome.
Did you study artwork? If yes then from where?
No, i did not study artwork.
From where did you learn this?
YouTube tutorials/instagram posts. And a big dose of trial and error.
Why did you choose art as a profession?
The awesome thing about the artistic process is the chance of bringing a lot of new things that might be usually unrelated and gather them in an artwork and give all that stuff a new and amazing meaning.
Who are your biggest influences?
Ron Gilbert, because I’m a huge fan of graphic adventures. I would also mention Jinsang, a lofi producer, and super cool pixel artists like AbueloRetrowave, Geography of Robots and 8pxl_ (or Jubilee).
How do you become a successful artist?
Despite the possibility of making a living out of it and popularity, I think the success in art is finding the way of communicate emotions, given the chance to people to experience what you have in your own mind. I think that you’re a successful artist when, making something inspired in your childhood, you give the tools to the audience to experience the colors, sounds or any sensation that makes them feel in some place of their childhood too.
What makes you good and different from others?
It’s a bit difficult to consider oneself as “good” when you’re seeing your whole art process, because it is a way where you have to embrace your mistakes, the ugly drafts and the unfinished ideas. It’s hard because you don’t see just the final version. I tend to pay attention to details, because I want to make it as good as I can so I can be better than my previous version of myself. And, to be fair, I don’t know what could make me different from other artists, because each one of us is making our own way, and sometimes you don’t know what will make the audience think that your art is special and different from others. Sometimes is the right artwork in the right moment, sometimes is a refined technique, sometimes is something that made you laugh or smile.
What does your art represent and does art mean to you?
My art (and I’m not only talking about drawing) tries to represent always a comfort place. Not just in a “comfort zone” way. I always want to bring coziness. I try to put colors, shapes, sounds and scenarios together so the ones who see or listen feels that my art is a place they would love to be in. To me, my art represents my childhood in many ways. My hometown, the evenings playing with friends in the street, the streetlights that marks the end of the day. All of that represents to me a safe place that i try to make, if not eternal, a little bit more durable.
