paul robertson, the popular pixel animator recently featured on popular kids show & tumblr favorite gravity falls, clearly has a huge woman problem and likes to draw cutesy racist pics of women being raped and murdered. If you have the stomach for a depiction of the murder…
Paul Robertson’s Custer’s Revenge piece was done for an IAM8BIT gallery show in 2011 honoring retro games. Custer’s Revenge is an Atari 2600 game wherein you play as a white cowboy caricature and dodge obstacles to get to your goal: a pixelated native american woman (complete with feather headband) who you then fuck. Seriously, that’s the whole game. The game was released in 1982.
Looking back on it now, the whole concept of Custer’s Revenge is gross, racist, and downright weird. It’s still considered controversial. I absolutely read Robertson’s Custer’s Revenge piece as completely satirical as he points out with a grotesque, over-the-top rendition just how bizarre and stupid the concept of this obscure game was.
Paul Robertson is known for gore and boobs, but that piece is grotesque and awful because it’s supposed to be. It’s satire. That’s the entire point. Please do some googling before you continue to scream OH MY GOD HOW COULD THEY HIRE THIS PERSON.
Also it should be pointed out that this piece was presented to adults in a 18+ gallery. Artists can cover a variety of genres from kid friendly to adult and still get hired for both.
