Campbell Whyte Keeps NES Dreams Alive [Art]
Today’s gamers may play in a high-def world, but Campbell Whyte’s “8 Bit Dreams” project remains alive and strong, and the longer he goes, the more likely you are to see him recreate a beloved moment from your NES-playing past. Notably he’s now handled Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest, Super Mario Bros. 2 and Mega Man, and he shows no signs of slowing down.
The Australian artist’s marathon on CampbellWhyte.com continues to be an old memory electromagnet, and if you see anything you like, he sells his painted flashbacks through his Etsy account.
It’s unsurprising that his iconic portrait of Bionic Commando standing over Hitler’s head has already sold, but there are many others that would really tie a gaming room together. In fact, his Arkanoid tribute may even be more exciting that the original game that it’s based on. Attach your eyeballs to that, along with some Legend of Zelda and Solomon’s Key scenes below.
