Nostalgic Memories by mirzers Nostalgic Memories by mirzers
Oil painting on 16x20 canvas

Red version was my first Gameboy game and I played it until I had a complete Pokedex. Never would I have guessed that Pokemon would be such a large part of my life. It has inspired me so much.

Pokemon really has to be one of my all time favorite things.

Oh my god my first GameBoy and GameBoy game was ORIGINAL BRICK and Super Mario Land.
Am I old, or did you just not get a GameBoy until late? xD

EITHER WAY THIS IS BEAUTIFUL AND IF THIS WAS WHAT WAS IN ART MUSEUMS I'D CARE MORE ABOUT ART MUSEUMS.

I still have my gameboy color and yellow version.

My mind is still grappling with the fact that this is a painting. That just goes to show how skillful it is.

People in my class thought that the pixel screen was a photo transfer, but when they walked right up to it, they realized it was hand painted haha

Thanks!
