Product Description

Dream Team Original Emily Crook

Emily was born in 1996 and studied Graphic Design at Middlesex University, but always had a passion for art. Upon graduating Emily changed her career path and became dedicated to creating art and finding her unique artistic vision. ­Emily takes her inspiration from fashion, culture, pop and street art and then merges these with icons from popular culture which she grew up surrounded by.

Emily has always followed street art and this takes influence in her backgrounds. The backgrounds are all created using spray paint and hand cut stencils and then acrylic paints are used to hand paint her chosen icon over the top. Finally Emily’s love for fashion comes through many of the pieces as the her icons will usually be found holding shopping bags or be wearing luxury brands.

Sonic the Hedgehog is a media franchise owned by Sega, centering on a series of high-speed platform games. Sonic, the protagonist, is an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog with supersonic speed. Typically, Sonic must stop antagonist Doctor Eggman’s plans for world domination, often helped by his friends, such as Tails, Amy, and Knuckles.

The first Sonic the Hedgehog game, released in 1991, was conceived by Sega’s Sonic Team division after Sega requested a new mascot character to replace Alex Kidd and compete with Nintendo’s mascot Mario. Its success spawned many sequels and helped Sega become one of the leading video game companies during the 16-bit era of the early 1990s. The first major 3D Sonic game, Sonic Adventure, was released in 1998 for the Dreamcast. Spin-offs have explored other genres, including racing games such as Sonic R (1997) and sports games such as Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
