Back in Offworld’s earliest days I noted (with some amount of congratulatory jealousy that I didn’t think of it first) the excellent work of LittleBigPlanetoid in bringing artist-designed sticker packs to LittleBigPlanet from illustrators Matt Buchanan and Will Scobie.
There’s been a bit of a lull in the packs since then, but for good reason: LittleBigPlanetoid operators James Spafford and Tom Kiss have since made the jump to Media Molecule itself, hired on as community managers.
So it’s not too much of a surprise (but a very happy one!) to hear via the newly refreshed Edge Online of a now officially-sanctioned campaign to bring artists and designers on board for new sticker packs in coming months.
The first confirmed pack, reports Edge, will come from Offworld favorite Jon Burgerman (previously mentioned for his fantastic work in creating a new level for the PSP’s Wipeout Pure), with plans to approach Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and artist Claire Wendling for future packs.
See the full interview with LittleBigPlanet art director Kareem Ettouney for more on Media Molecule’s other DLC plans, including a crossover content pack with legendary UK comic house 2000AD.
