Pixels and Paint, the Art of Adam Shub

Magfest Paintings 

I’ve always had a soft spot for pixel art. I suppose I can attribute that to the endless hours I spent glued to various game consoles as a youth. Last weekend I attended MAGfest in Alexandria, Virginia where I encountered Adam Shub. The man had a booth set up in vendor room, and I had just happened by it. On his table, there were multiple pieces of pixel art he had hand-painted. 

In short, it was instant nostalgia. He had reproduced various scenes from classic games. While he had a few of these smaller paintings on hand, he also had a collection of larger portraits which I found myself drooling over. I found myself cursing the fact that I flew in and had no way of transporting them across the country. Still, its amazing work and if you want to see more, check out his deviant art page by clicking here.
