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!!

Gamer Jewelry- Nintendo, 8-bit and Old School (Part 2)

Here goes part deux of the Gamer Jewelry series. This is one of the many parts of a long series of Nerdy Jewelry I will be doing because I am a girl and I like jewelry and also happen to like nerdy things as well. So this is a way to combine the two… kind of like a blog version of an attack combo WATA!

Oh BTW…

You’ll see a lot of 8-bit jewelry… this is not only because I think it’s cool but also because of the overwhelming nostalgia I get from anything and everything 8-bit.  You’ll also see a lot of Nintendo stuff, this is simply because I really like Nintendo. Lastly, please forgive me in advance for the cheesy lines you are about to read, I couldn’t help myself.

I could write some super corny line that replaces one of the words in some famous Star Wars quote with “triforce” but I won’t…

No pot breaking and bush cutting necessary to get these rupees!

“Fire Power!”

“It’s-a me Mario!”

“Sorry, Mario, but your princess is in another castle!”

Didn’t you just love the underwater music for Mario?!… la la la la… eek a Blooper!
