Hey, hi, how you doing. I’m doing a little something, nothing too interesting, but anyway. Anyone who actively follows my blog, or who is interested in pixel art on Tumblr, may be aware of a blog known as noirlac. If you’re not, and aren’t prone to epilepsy or such, go check him out. Dude posts a lot of really great pixel art from a range of places, particularly some obscure stuff that could easily otherwise go unnoticed.
Sounds great and all, right? In theory, yes. However, there’s something of a sticking point, for me and for a lot of people. noirlac never tags or sources anything he posts, and none of it is his original work (well, very mild edits on his part, but nothing that significantly alters the nature of the work). In this age of Internet and reverse image searching, this just plain isn’t good enough (especially considering he almost certainly is aware of the sources).
However, the other magic of this Internet is that I can do something about this, sort of. Armed with a little sense, Google’s reverse image search, and too much free time, I’ve started a blog dedicated to simply reblogging noirlac’s material, but with a link to the source game or artist where possible. This is embarassingly easy to do in many cases, so why bother, you ask? A statement, I guess. Some people care about what the source is. If you can get behind that, spread the word, or follow, or don’t do anything. I don’t care. For interested parties, though, here it is.
