Every Saturday, Creators premieres a new issue from net art platform and artist collective, FELT Zine.

The tropical pixel art in this week's 29th issue of FELT Zine resembles the grainy cut-scenes you might see in handheld arcade game from the 90s. These florescent beach scenes were created by Muay Thai Food Club, a.k.a Muay Thai Fight Club, a mysterious, semi-anonymous artist group fronted by Tsuki D Sureiyā. The work borrows its aesthetic from early Nintendo games and anime shows like Cowboy Bebop, but set on a surreal island replete with dragons, tanks, cognac, and, of course, naked girls playing tennis. Check out some images of the issue below:

In addition to the net art, Sureiyā and the Muay Thai Food Club produce their own brand of heavy electro music. When we asked for a description of the work in this week's issue, the artists said they were also working on a full-length music video for their song, "China Shipping." They dropped a special premiere of the video on their website that you can watch now using the password "nomocudakoma."
