So meet my girlfriend: Andrea Purcell.
She doesn�t like talking about herself so I get to do that with this bio. When I found her, she was a fan of comics and gaming and not much else. We met while playing a pen and paper RPG in the back of comic shop. But her gaming love runs deeper. She started playing NES with her mom and can roundly kick my ass at Dr. Mario to this day. She scavenged a PSX from a dumpster to play Final Fantasy 7, now that is devotion that I can�t match. She has chosen to now express her devotion to gaming in a new interesting way. She cross-stitches it, this is beyond cool. Illustrating each pixel with thread on a canvas background, so cool. (Yeah she played Kirby�s epic yarn are you really surprised.) We keep moving forward in gaming still. Her with her Nintendo and Mario love and I with my 360 and Bioware love.
Her boyfriend, Conan.

Im always very impressed by someone who can take something very recognizable and make it their own. That is exactly what Arcade Art does so well. This amazing artist can take a great game like Mass Effect 2 and create sprites that would make you stop and think Did Bioware really make an 8-bit game?

Or a NES version of Half Life 2.

Even Spanish zombies!

Not only does she do sprite art, check out some of her original paintings!

Thats an amazing artist with a great talent. Make sure to check out her shop on Etsy.

Hi everyone! Id like to introduce myself. My names Andrea, but you can call me Stitch Please. This is my first post on Destructoid, and Im very new to the community. I found out about this wonderful place through ConfusionBomb and Shadowsinthenyte, both of whom I met at Magfest. You may remember me from the Magfest Artisans post, yup; Im the cross stitch girl. For those of you who want to see more cool cross stitch stuff, boy are you in the right place! As part of introducing myself, Id like to give you an idea of what I make and love to do.

This is the first commission I ever had, and it's still my favorite.

I love these sprites, they're from the Card Gallery.

I do love that cube, and I can't wait for Portal 2!

This is my favorite set of magnets, Black Mage FTW.


I'm working on the Cerberus logo too.

Yup, I made wearable Pokemon badges, because I'm a nerd, that's why.

Just for those who haven't see it, this is the famous Street Fighter stitch. It took three months, and I had Guile's theme playing the whole time.

Mortal Kombat!!!!!!!

For good measure, here's a zombie from Zombie Ate My Neighbors. I <3 LucasArts.

Well now that youve seen all of the cool stuff Ive made, Ive got a promise for you. Ill keep you up to date on all the projects Im doing, but Ill also find more of this cool geekcraft stuff you may be hearing about. So be sure to add me and watch my blog as I find the coolest craftiest stuff for gamers on the internet. Stitch ya later!
