Twenty years ago today, on the 21 February 1993, Star Fox was released in Japan for Nintendo's Super Famicon console and was the first game from Nintendo to use 3D polygon graphics, generated by the Super FX processor. When it was released in Europe in June that year, its name was changed to Starwing due to a trademark issue.
Five years later, Star Fox 64 – called Lylat Wars in Europe – was released for the Nintendo 64 console, and was notable for the voice acting featured in the game which included a number of memorable phrases, especially Peppy Hare's "Do a barrel roll", which eventually went on to become an Internet meme and even a hidden easter egg on the search engine Google (try searching for "Do a barrel roll"...).
So I thought I'd draw something to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Star Fox...

It was my brother's 30th birthday on Friday. He recently attempted the Devastator Challenge at the Red Dog Saloon in Hoxton: to finish a burger consisting of three 6oz patties, 200g of pulled pork, six rashers of bacon and six slices of cheese with two sides of coleslaw and French fries, plus a milkshake in 10 minutes(!). In the end he didn't quite make it, but it gave me the idea for his card...
