This fun piece was for The Weekly Themed Art Blog, the weekly theme being Computer Games.
As a child (and still to this day) I thoroughly enjoyed playing Berzerk on the Atari 2600. Not only did I enjoy the game but I loved the brilliant illustrations on the boxes. Looking back, I can quite easily say that they were an influence on my young, creative mind. However, the illustrations didn't really convey the look of the game's graphics, which sometimes left me a little disappointed. So, for the theme I recreated the original game illustration in a way which is closer to game's actual graphics.
