Edge Retro cover re­vival Twelve years ago, Gary Lucken was dab­bling in pixel art as a hobby, post­ing his doo­dlings on Edge’s dis­cus­sion fo­rum. When we asked him if he’d like to have a run at il­lus­trat­ing the cover of our first Retro spe­cial edi­tion, he couldn’t refuse – and turned it into a new ca­reer ded­i­cated to build­ing things out of tiny blocks. Since then, he’s con­trib­uted to Edge on many more oc­ca­sions, worked for the likes of the BBC, DHL and GQ, and cre­ated vi­su­als for games in­clud­ing Scram Kitty And His Buddy On Rails. This month, he de­cided to ‘re­mas­ter’ his very first Edge work, and the re­sult is an eye-pop­pingly vivid treat.
