In 1990 I got a Game Boy for Christmas. It was the first games console I ever owned and it was my most prized possession. I was having a think about what to do for the ‘iam8bit Entertainment System‘ gallery show, and I thought it would be cool to pay tribute to that little green screen that gave me my start in console gaming.
This is the first time I’ve screen printed pixel art and I’m really delighted with how it turned out. Screen printing is done colour buy colour and entirely by hand, and there is always some imperfections. Because there is a high level of precision required in registration (lining up the colours) for a print of this nature, I was a bit cautious about how it might turn out but they look great.
It’s a 3 colour screen print on Colorplan Pistachio green stock. Edition of 100. The show opens 7 June, from 7PM at iam8bit gallery at 2147 W. Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90026. Take a look if you’re in LA area!
