Zork Stained Glass Window: Get Window

Zork Stained Glass Window: Get Window
I think I must have killed hundreds of hours wandering my way through the twisty dungeons of Zork, so when I saw this bit of retro-geek art, it made me grin from ear-to-ear. Apparently, Brian Gaines was a big Zork Fan back in the day too, so he and his high school pal made this excellent Zork stained glass art to show their fanboy ways all the way back in 1983.

The Cover Came First: Games Based on Famicase Art
While a lot of games probably started out with just a sketch of a landscape or of the main character, I doubt there’s many games out there where its cover art inspired the actual game. But that’s exactly what the members of TIGSource did, turning Famicase art into actual games.

Pixelation forum member junkboy has been making video game demake mock-ups for Swedish magazine Level for several years now. He recently shared some of his creations because he didn’t want them to “just gather dust” on his hard drive.

Minimalist Star Wars Posters: Luke is Definitely Missing His Hand

Minimalist Star Wars Posters: Luke is Definitely Missing His Hand
I just love the simplicity of these bare-bones Star Wars character posters by Sam Serling-Sutton. Each set of 6 posters boils down Luke, Vader, Han, Chewie, C-3PO and R2-D2 to their barest of essences. Best of all, the set of 11×17 posters will run you just $12 bucks, so with a few cheap frames, you can decorate an entire room for next to nothing.

Virtual Insects Crawl on Real Hands

Spotted at SIGGRAPH 2010, this interactive art display might just look like a pile of sand, but stick your hands in it, and a variety of creepy crawly insects come to life. Thankfully, these nasty many-legged creatures aren’t real.

Laser Cut Retro Art Brings Back Fond Childhood Memories

Laser Cut Retro Art Brings Back Fond Childhood Memories
See if you can name all of the iconic retro images you’ll find in cutoutpaper’s Retro Laser Cut art. I definitely recognize my Speak & Spell, NES controller, Casio calculator watch, Etch-a-Sketch, ViewMaster, Atari joystick and Rubik’s Cube.

Star Wars Painting: the Colors Are Strong in This One
As a child, Robert Burden was amazed by the action figures he had – G.I. Joes, WWF wrestlers, Star Wars characters. Now that he’s all grown up, Burden makes paintings of his childhood love in an attempt to re-capture the awe that he felt as a youngster (and to make a few bucks as well).

P0nd: a Video Game That Asks if It’S Art

Star Wars Goes Out on the Town, Victorian-Style

Star Wars Goes Out on the Town, Victorian-Style
I’ve never really thought that Star Wars characters could go out in public without shooting a few stormtroopers or using a lightsaber, but these new paintings by Greg Peltz would definitely allow Chewbacca to go out in style The original idea came from Robert Mackenzie who created a cool-looking portrait of Chewbacca with a monocle.

Artist Garvin Nolte mounted 25 GPS nav gadgets on his windshield and dashboard, then let them all give him directions  to the same place at the same time.

Famous Movie Quotes Get an Artful Treatment

Famous Movie Quotes Get an Artful Treatment
These famous movie quotes have been illustrated into these clever designs by artist Goran Patlejch, who’s also known as Goenetix. Perhaps it’s the circular design, but they kind of remind me of coasters – or maybe the Starbucks logo.
