Going Retro — The 8-bit Basement

January 7, 2010

Ah the memories . . .:D

Just looking at this brings me back to my childhood. I can here the pitchy music, feel the controller in my hand, and all those games we thought were so awesome.

Alex Eylar aka Profound Whatever created this:

It began as a graffiti-style project illustrating my first name (there is still a vague A-L-E-X pattern to it), and turned into a smorgasbord of 80s references.

I think my favorite part is how the digital figures seem to be breaking through a wall. Perhaps there’s some deep message . . . or maybe its just cool looking. 😉
