Artist Chris Carlson has recreated one of the most popular video games of all time using chalk, a blackboard and some amazing stop motion animation. The result is a charming walk down memory lane as the video depicts Tetris blocks being nuzzled neatly into place. The process that the artist undertook to create this slice of nostalgia is nothing short of incredible.

Watch as Carlson draws the framework in chalk and then fills in the Tetris blocks in incredible 3D detail. The fact that Carlson chose stop motion animation to showcase his pop culture artwork only makes it more visually appealing.

Gaming references are extremely prevalent in modern pop culture, and this 3D Tetris chalk art is just one great example of how artists are continuing to keep the era of retro video games alive.
