"Down at the Barcade..."

This is my submission to Gallery 1988's "Old School Video Game Art Show", taking place this Friday, September 16th at:
Gallery 1988: Venice
214 Pier Avenue
Santa Monica, CA 90405

I decided to try and show what video game characters might do after a long hard day of fighting off a gorilla, chasing after a hungry yellow sphere, our endlessly pouring beers for thirsty customers (bartenders are never off-duty...). This was done using Micron ink pens and Prismacolor markers. The original piece and a very small edition of prints will be available at the show, and on the gallery's website the day after the show.
