This week has been extremely exciting for Pokemon fans all around the world. Pokémon GO was released to an enormous and enthusiastic audience, making national news coverage. The game has had reports of mass group meetings, proof of people with depression and anxiety disorders coming out of their shell, and even the discovery of a murder in the US state of Wyoming.
Pokémon GO has brought together almost three generations of Pokémon players, old and young, and everybody has had their own way of celebrating it.
In honor of 20 years of Pokémon, and my personal 15 years of playing the game, I have started creating mosaic styled posters of everyone's favorite Pokémon. Check them out below!
I got inspiration from the Nintendo licensed Legend of Zelda: Windwaker stained glass wall art. I figured if Link and Zelda could have posters that beautiful, why not Pokémon? I wanted to create mature art for the mature player.
These posters are for sale at www.erinscharacter.com. For now, they are only available by personal request, however a true shop is in the works!
This is what being a fan is all about. Creating new things, meeting new people, and coming together over common interests. I believe that formula is the reason Pokemon's popularity has not wavered for two decades. I have enjoyed playing Pokémon GO with everyone, however I also can't wait for the release of Pokémon Sun/Moon on November 18, 2016. With Pokémon ORAS selling 10 million copies, I'm counting on it being exciting!
