I am Nim-bit!

I was fortunate enough to be able to contribute a piece to this year's Iam8Bit! show at the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery, in Hollywood. Believe it or not, coming up with a concept and image for this piece was probably one of the most vexing experiences I've had with a piece in a long while...it was kind of nice.

'Endure'
16" by 18" mixed media on stonehenge paper.
Here's the black and white version.

I ended up going with my own take on Mario...I know what your thinking..." Where's the moustache? ...that don't look like no Italian Stallion?!".

Star power!

Here's a flyer for the show, if your in the area you should definitely check it out...Nerdcore knows how to party like rockstars!

Dude, I am diggin' the take on Mario. I love when people take what people already know and turn it around to make it their own. Seriously bad ass. Goodluck with the show, this looks killer.
