Whenever I think of Summer, I think of arcades.
The weather is perfectly warm with a cool breeze and I hear the chirps of the loud arcade cabinets and the familiar sea of clicks and button presses everywhere. I smell the popcorn and my pocket is loaded with some sort of coin that stacks perfectly. Somewhere, shouting can be heard, but it's the kind that raises no alarms. It's a Friday after school.
That is what I think of whenever I see jianghu.e's art. Using texture, warmth is applied to otherwise cool synthetic surfaces like keyboards, arcade cabinets, and stylish shoes. To me, it creates a feeling of overwhelming nostalgia while also feeling new and fresh.
Kick back, relax, and try to remember summer as you scroll through this art.
Warcraft 3 is my one true love and I will challenge anyone to a game of Super Smash Brothers Melee.
