Fan Art from Potatoman? Why yes don’t mind if we do.
Our collective of fans new and old have produced some interesting Potatoman art for us. Potatoman is such a simple character it’s easy for anyone to reimagine him as any sort of potato-person they could ever desire. It brings to mind a concept introduced to me by Scott McCloud in Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art: that through abstraction a character can describe more possibilities of people. You may not be able to imagine yourself as a potato, but perhaps you can relate to our little spud a little easier as forty or fifty pixels.
That’s one of the facets that makes pixel art so lovable to us. Enough with the high concepts of non-realism and pixel abstraction; our fans imagined and reimagined Potatoman in different situations and depths of being. Enjoy!
