It turns out that Canabalt's rooftop-running hero isn't actually Michael Jackson, at least according to this new fanart from DnaTemjin that gives the dark gray and white sprite a lot more detail. The piece (full version below) also adds detail to the atmospheric game's flying doves, menacing mechs, and destroyed buildings in the background.

After seeing a link to this pop up in Canabalt developer Adam "Atomic" Saltsman's Twitter feed, I thought this would be a good opportunity to show off several of the artworks fans have created since the one-button action game took the internet and iPhone by storm. After the break you'll find re-sized images and links for fan-made sketches, wallpapers, and even a mock-up of an NES title screen.
