I ran into my friend Brad – aka Bonemouse – at a coffee shop recently. He mentioned his new Isabella Texture Pack For Minecraft, and how successful it’s been – over 300,000 downloads. Brad seemed quite excited about the Minecraft community’s response to his work. Given the number of downloads we think you’ll see that the Isabella Texture Pack lives up to its reputation.
“Isabella II is a newer version of Isabella (which is now called Isabella Classic.) Isabella II offers the same melancholic feel but it now has brighter visuals in order to improve the playing experience on a wider range of monitors“. Source: ~ Minecraft Forum Posting By Bonemouse About Isabella
Brad has been an artist as long as I’ve known him – 16 years or so. He’s always been doodling, drawing, inventing his own characters, and he’s always been an avid comic book reader. To hear that he quietly went ahead and created a highly successful Minecraft texture pack was intriguing, but not really a surprise given his artistic aptitude and output over the years.
Go to this Minecraft Forum post to learn more about Brad’s Isabella Minecraft texture pack, or watch this YouTube video. Happy crafting!

We are 4 days away from the premiere of a Minecraft documentary about the game and its founder, Markus “Notch” Persson. The film will premiere on Saturday, December 22, 2012 on Xbox Live for Gold members in the UK, US, Belgium, Ireland, Austria, Portugal, France, Finland and Sweden. This hopefully won’t be the last of the MInecraft documentaries, as there are many possibilities for telling interesting stories around the creation and meteoric rise of Minecraft.
