There's an art exhibit running in Hollywood until September 7th entitled "I Am 8-Bit" that features a bunch of old school gaming inspired art. If you're in the area you might want to check it out at: Wonder Storefront Gallery, 6650 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA. But if you can't make it, all the pieces are available for sale online. The originals are fetching over a grand, but there are a couple prints (including a wicked Link/Gannon) for $100. Hit the jump to see some of my favorites, along with a link to both the show gallery and print sale page. Let's face it, there just isn't anything cooler than 8-bit gaming art. Well, besides 4-bit gaming art. ZOMG I'm so oldschool!
