8bitLA Presents HACK THE MULTIVERSE – One Week Away!

8bitLA Presents HACK THE MULTIVERSE is only a week away! Our special E3 event is a 3 stage extravaganza featuring 20+ artists & bands performing chiptune, electronic, indie, nerdcore, video game music, and everything in between! It’s like the mega evolution of all of our (sometimes) monthly event, Hack the Planet, and we all know that mega evolutions entail all sorts of badassery and sometimes include cybernetic enhancement chips, so it would be silly of you nerds not to show up 😉

Tapioca – Punimelt and Slime Girls Collaborate on Sentimental Animated Short

Toronto based artist Punimelt combines elements of inspiration, girl power, and teenage daydreams in her animated short TAPIOCA. Her heartwarming and surreal animation combined with dreamy and uplifting music from Slime Girls (Pedro Silva) makes watching Tapioca something like floating in a bubblegum cloud somewhere deep in the mind of a virtual pet.

Tapioca from Michy Soong on Vimeo.

Punimelt’s shop and portfolio are filled with soft and whimsical treasures that you can check out HERE! If you want to see her designs irl, you can catch her at Anime Expo  – Los Angeles Convention Center, Otakon – Baltimore, Maryland, and Otakuthon – Montreal.
