The theme selected for week two-fifty-eight of Operation Graphite will be: Zelda.



Nintendo has a new gaming console, and a new Zelda game to go along with it. From the few reviews that I have read, it sounds amazing. I probably will never get to play it.

Phase One Operation Graphite is winding down. We are past, or closely approaching the the five year mark, depending on which metric you choose to use. I had some hope I could make it to 300 Grey Ops, but I think it may be time to end things sooner. I do not intend this to be the end of Operation Graphite, but the end of the the project in its current form. The end of a chapter, and a start to a new one.

Over the next few weeks I will post the last three themes. 260 will be the target, and after that there will be a short break, and perhaps a new mission for Operation Graphite MKII, or Phase 2. I haven’t settled on the fancy title for the next incarnation, or what the next incarnation will even be.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Zelda.

Week thirty five of Operation Graphite – Theme: The Legend of Zelda.

Few other other video games inspire such nostalgia. What now seems like a simple game with bad graphics, was ahead of it’s time as one of the first non linear video games. The later Zelda games were good, and had greatly improved stories and graphics. But, it’s those first installments that just gave you a few story elements; they inspired players to fill in the rest of the details with their imagination. Part of me always hopes that we will see a Legend of Zelda movie some day. The other part of me realizes that if it were done, it would probably be as bad as the Super Mario Brothers movie. Maybe for the best that it never gets a Hollywood makeover.

The theme selected for week thirty five of Operation Graphite will be: The Legend of Zelda.

The Kingdom of Hyrule has long suffered under the rule of the dark wizard Gannon. Only Princes Zelda, who holds the Triforce of Wisdom, and a young boy named Link, who holds the Triforce of Courage, can stop the Evil Gannon and his Triforce of Power from crushing the known world under his iron rule. This week we celebrate one of the most influential video game series of all time. Time to put down your controller, and pick up your art supplies as we journey to Hyrule.

Any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that is inspired by The Legend of Zelda series is far game.

All art work is due on Thursday 10.4.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 10.5.12.

And for the record. Link will always be a Lefty.
