‘Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 8’ Art Contest Spotlight

Posted by

As I’m sure you’ve no doubt noticed in and around ChipWIN-Land™ as of late, we’ve been promoting the tomato lovin’ heck out of the latest entry to our summer Volume compilation. Quite appropriate for us to do I reckon, as it is a brand new ChipWIN compilation, and also, incredibly fabulous! ♪♫♬ (ˇ_ˇ”) ƪ(˘⌣˘)┐ ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ ┌(˘⌣˘)ʃ ♬♫♪

That said, the chiptune side of Volume 8 isn’t the only part worthy of extended promo and celebration. The art contest entries this year are equally tomato-tastic (literally: including a 🍅 somewhere in the work was an entry requirement), and you can feast your eyes upon their collective splendor via the following slideshow.

To discover more amazing works from the artists (and hey, maybe ping ’em for an art commission for your own projects and/or enjoyment!), dive into the links section underneath the artwork. Enjoy! (ノ゚0゚)ノᵒᵐᵍ _〆(。。)

Sup, Chip-stronauts?ヾ(^∇^)

It is well known within the Chipth Dimension™ that many of us among our musical collective are particularly enthralled by the mysteries of the cosmos; mention astronomy and/or cosmology around a bunch of chip nerds and you’ll see what I mean with a quickness.

Yet somehow, there inexplicably remains an unexplored dark void in the space themed chiptune compilations quadrant.

Until now.
