gooolOS Design and Philosophy Notes

November 30th, 2022
The Riot Goools website (I refer to it as gooolOS) takes many aesthetic cues from the early world wide web and the computers of that period. More specifically, it draws a lot from the design of the first Macintosh OS GUIs and the work of early Apple icon designer, Susan Kare, who is a big influence on me as a pixel artist. My first interaction with computers was in elementary school where there was a dusty old Apple computer tucked away in the corner of the library that was mostly used for playing Oregon Trail (we all thought it was just an Oregon Trail machine.) I think staring at those little pixelated images flashing on the screen likely started my obsession with making drawings out of little squares and turning those drawings into little worlds with meaning.

One Year in the Gooolniverse

October 5th, 2022
It's been one year since my first tweet which marked the beginning of this whole crazy journey (actually, I started working on the drawings for the Riot Goools in September but I was still just lurking in the space. And the Riot Goools mint began on October 6, 2021, the day after my first tweet.) I don't really know what to write for an occasion like this. I don't think I expected this thing to last so long. When I started, I didn't have any expectations at all. I was literally starting from zero and just wanted to experiment and learn and share art and ideas with people. It still feels like a strange year-long dream. Like one of those dreams where you're constantly meeting and connecting with random strangers and characters. One where the logic of the world is a little bit skewed but you don't question it. It's the kind of dream that keeps you tossing and turning all night and leaves you even more exhausted afterwards.
