Picture of the Week- 8-Bitscapes

Flyover Squad

Geek-Art, my go-to for all things amazing, featured work from photographer Kevin Rozario Johnson and illustrator Jamie Sneddon. Johnson and Sneddon combined their forces and produced these truly spectacular series of 8-bitscapes.

More about 8-bitscapes from the artists:

“8-bitscapes is a concept created by artist & illustratorJamie Sneddon & photographer Kevin Rozario-Johnson.

For their first 8-bitscapes exhibition, they have brought together their two disciplines to create this stunning series of works.

With a ‘giant nod’ towards the world of 8-bit gaming, the artists have produced a series of 8, strictly limited edition prints. These thought provoking images re-imagine well loved, iconic retro digital characters in real life scenarios. Framing them forever as they munch, invade, race, battle and bleep their way around planet EARTTTTTHHHHHH!!

Video Games vs. Real Life

Aled Lewis (Fatheed on Flickr) transported your favorite old school video game characters into the real world in some impressive photo manipulations. I get a special kind of nostalgia whenever I see old school video game characters. Chris Hardwick wore his Doctor Who/Back to the Future shirt on The Late Late Show! Check our his Flickr and website AledLews.com he also has a bunch of other great geek related art.

Gorilla In The Mist

aka: Kong of the Jungle. The reason he was so mixed up was because he was missing home. A construction site is no place for a 500lb ape. Look at how happy he is now.

Base Jumper

Dammit. I gave him an umbrella when he was meant to be a blocker.
