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!!

Gnarcade Video

From G4:

Knife Show’s snowboarding videos have always been amazing, but the vid posted last night surpasses all their past efforts. Directed by X-Play‘s own Mike Benson, “Gnarcade” mashes video game memes with snowboarding and skateboarding to create something guaranteed to drop your jaw.

Scott Stevens, Micah Hollinger, Chris Beresford, Tim Eddy, Ben Bogart and Casey Wrightsman provide the action and Ground Up provides the game-inspired soundtrack.”

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!
