While the debate over videogames as art continues to rage, Joshua Cadmium has taken it upon himself to make art out of videogames. Specifically, Samus Aran.

Taking a cue from his childhood love of Metroid, the artist has created some nostalgia-inducing pixilated pictures, painstakingly recreated line for line on wood.

His techniques and art style are above my head, so I’ll let him do the talking as far as the art side is concerned. I’m just here to talk videogames.
