I AM 8-BIT: THE BOOK

Mario by Gabe SwarrChronicle Books is going to be making a lot of people happy in April 2006. Not only is my 50s design book coming out then, but my friend Jon Gibson just let me know that Chronicle will also be releasing his book in the same month. Jon’s book, I AM 8-BIT, is based on the well received art show that he curated in LA earlier this year, wherein nearly a hundred modern illustrators, painters and animation artists offered their visual interpretations of classic lo-res videogame characters. To get a taste of the book, check out the I AM 8-BIT show website.
