Sorry, Dane, I ordered and sold the other three posters off over four years ago: http://archive.maaca.org/s107351202.onl ... 247191362/


You could always scan the one you have and upload the file. ;)


Ditto for the one with the chick ;-)

I hadn't realized that, but I definitely agree!
It's a print from a painting by Arthur Robins: http://fineartamerica.com/featured/vide ... obins.html
You can also buy the print from Michaels.


Is there an online link to Michaels?

I couldn't find one - I don't think they list individual art prints that they buy online - you'll likely need to go into any of their stores and check out their print isle.

A friend of mine sent me this link today - an incredibly geeky parody of Missile Command called "Defenders of Ataros"
Notice the 3 missile bases and 6 cities too ;-)
I just have to order one (full site here: http://kimfostergallery.com/dan-hernandez/ ):

I've been meaning to share a few of my pieces.

This one is a screen print from "A Life Well Wasted" podcast :

Pinball Cat screen print bought in Toronto (probably a local artist):

This one is actually a 1980's ad meant to go in a store window (never used). Bought it from our buddy the auctioneer, Mark Taafe:

And these are one-of-a-kind pieces made by my step-daughter:

Cross-stitch Invaders:

Cross-stitch Boo clock:

And this renaissance masterpiece, "World 2-1: Red Roof Mill Level"

That is awesome. Wicked share.

Just checked out his other work. Lots of other game references in other pieces. Really great stuff. I have to see if I can get something of his.

I actually found the frame at Michaels and the colours reminded me of Dig Dug, so I went looking for nerd art online that I could stick in it.

I found this ( http://lordlibidan.com/2011/05/18/the-s ... ss-stitch/ ) but the guy who made it doesn't take orders, so I just recreated it in Microsoft Paint and printed it on textured paper.

You can get the file here: http://triosdevelopers.com/jason.eckert ... DigDug.bmp

Nice.

... but, while you were at Michael's, you should have bought material, yarn, and a needle to properly cross-stitch the image yourself! fawk.

:D
