I was playing Junk Yard earlier today and kept getting distracted by the artwork underneath the left flipper. I couldn't place it until I realized it looks a lot like the ball on the upper left of pinside's site. Was the Pinside logo modeled after the Junk Yard artwork? And if so, is there any story behind why that was chosen?

I think the word you are looking for is "copied"

Not modeled after. It IS the ball below the left flipper on the JY playfield, although now with some of the color detail removed.

I think he copied the hat, too.

Mr. Personality would probably settle for a fair $4.00 for each view of the Piside homepage. A small price to pay.....

:stop:just layoff the snow flakes as each one is uniquely individual.
