WARNING: MASSIVE amount of pics, sorry 56k.
So here are pics from the i am 8-bit video game art show opening, courtesy of somakitty. Regarding the event:
“… hands down, this was the best show of 2005 (so far).”
Man, I’ve never wanted to be in LA so bad like right now. And I honestly believe that one does not have to be a video game aficionado to appreciate some of these pieces…
(perhaps my fave, but that’s cuz I’m such a fan of Baseman)
Erik Wayne Patterson
Gerg Craola Simkins
Jason Sho Green
(I wonder what’s written on Mario’s hand?)
Haze, who drew and painted for the audience
some life sized sculptures
and that gigantic NES controller from G4 proved to be a big hit of the crowd by all accounts
EDIT: Wow, even IGN reviewed the show. Weird…
EDIT #2: (5/27/05) Somakitty stopped by the final night of the show where there was some new work on display. You can find them here.
