Mattis Dovier is a visual artist and director who makes black and white animations (think early 80s Mac GUI). Content Warning: flashing lights, horrific imagery, and NSFW themes throughout. posted by codacorolla (9 comments total) 25 users marked this as a favorite
Startling, unsettling, and challenging. I found it difficult to view the artists tumblr for longer than 15 seconds at a time.

That said: very cool. Followed.

Wow, this is astonishingly well done. I wonder how he does this, the precision of the animation suggests at least some level of rotoscoping and/or automatic conversion, but he nails that 80s monochrome computer graphics look so perfectly that there has to be a substantial amount of manual work involved.

From a comment on his Vimeo:

For those who are wondering, the animations are hand drawn in low res, and I draw the shadows with different pixels grids (bitmap grey levels) using photoshop.

I would totally purchase a game in this style. Obviously as shareware on 3.5" floppy.

Reminds me a lot of Uno Moralez's art.

Excellent work. Tip of the hat for this style also has to go to Mike Saenz and the pioneering Shatter, produced on the first Macs. He also created early interactive sex game MacPlaymate so be careful image searchibg.
