So here's an 8-bit styled character I did for a game for Liquid Generation back in October 2006.
Around the time I did this piece, I showed it to someone I met from Lambo (a commercial studio in Marina del Rey) who expressed a high interest in my work. In January 2007, I saw a strikingly similar looking character on Motionographer, featuring Lambo's new piece.
I'm pretty sure they dubbed this off me. If that is the case, I think I'm more flattered than angry about it. It's kinda cool. Kinda.
The Motionographer article where I first noticed this piece is here.

You be the judge!
