I came across Kyleigh Grace Parker’s ‘Dangerous Pixels’ on Facebook by accident a while back and quickly jumped over to Instagram to check out their enchanting portfolio. This photography blends the worlds of reality and fantasy in such a way as to enhance both through their counterpart’s merits. Beloved video game characters come to life in their surroundings, delicately captured in magical macro photography. You know someone has something special when you get excited that they’ve just bought a new figure of which to take photographs.
We all need a reliable, regular feed of gaming memes and hilarity. Where better to get your daily dose of irreverent comedy to send to your friends than Gaming Humor’s Funny Video Game Instagram account. It pretty much does what it says on the box, nevertheless it’s a nice little comic relief.
Adult Swim created this Instagram game to promote
Season 2 of their animated series “Rick and Morty”. The series was created by Justin Roiland and Community’s Dan Harmon and follows protagonist Rick through various intergalactic adventures. The Instagram game however, boasts 11 planets to explore with more than 1000 high resolution images, 8 mini comics and interactive collectables – all of this spanning across 80 linked accounts. Created in July 2015, it was the first game to hit Instagram. In the introduction video from Rick, he explains that it’s more than just a game – it’s a “whole living, breathing universe to explore right inside Instagram”. It’s also a one of a kind branding and marketing exercise.
Jessica Smith is a concept artist from Australia. While her Instagram account offers an
insight into her gorgeous work, it’s over on her personal website that the character and depth of her art really shines through. I came across her through a recent Reddit post in which she showcased some Zelda concept art available for viewing on her main page. As an artistically challenged wannabe i’m continually amazed by the talent and power of everyday artists, and Smith is a prime candidate for my jealousy.
