1. I Am 8 Bit Gallery Opening


Last night was the huge "I Am 8-Bit" Gallery opening at the "World of Wonders" gallery on Hollywood Blvd. First of all, I have to say that I don't often walk the streets of Hollywood Blvd at night, but, if you're a tourist and you want to see your fair share of freaks and weirdos then perhaps a quick jaunt down that road might quench your desire rather quickly. I knew I was in for an interesting night when I walked by Captain Jack Sparrow smoking a cigarette and leaning on a mailbox and was later passed by Iron Man a little further down the street.

I had my little nerd fanboy moment when I met Adam Sessler one of the hosts of G4TV. Contrary to everyone thinking he's just humorous comic relief to the show he's REALLY knows his stuff about the game industry if you listen instead of watch with an empty stare. He wanted to buy my Elevator Action piece but it was sold before the show opening. By the way, a lot of you have asked me at the show last night and, yes, I'll be selling prints of "Elevator Action" starting maybe next week?


The folks at G4 were also cool enough to do a TV interview with me....


and I stupidly forgot to ask when it would air. So, I'll need everyone's help in finding out that information so I can set my TIVO.

The show was pretty amazing!


The line stretched down out the door about two city blocks which was pretty crazy and the artwork was the strongest I've seen the 8-bit show in years (having this be my third year) Jon Gibson and Gabe Swarr did an awesome job getting this whole show organized and it's always an event I look forward to every single year.
