8 Bit Dreams NES Art Makes Games More Endearing

by Lambert Varias

Artist Campbell Whyte has an ongoing series of watercolor paintings that he calls 8 Bit Dreams. Everyday he makes one painting based on one of the 799 games that came out for the NES, from classics like Super Mario Bros., Gradius and Double Dragon to lesser known ones like Winter Sports and Anticipation.

You get a blue bomb if you know what game the painting above is referencing. Here are some more of Campbell’s paintings. Can you name all of the games that each painting is based on? Actually most of them are quite obvious. Dammit.

I really like Campbell’s style. It’s humorous, colorful and nostalgic. You can browse more paintings or buy them for $50 (USD) each on Etsy. You can also commission Campbell to make a different painting for the same game or a new painting for another game, but I’m guessing he won’t duplicate a previous piece. You can also check out his website to see a gallery of the series.
