Aliens, Back to the Future, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones and Star Wars -- Fitz Fitzpatrick captures the allure of them all in this collection of cult classic 8-bit character portrayals. The collection looks like an arcade casting call for all the characters that populate the cult films of the 70s and 80s.
Looking at this gallery one may have their movie knowledge put to the test, with many of the characters easily identifiable others will require a keen eye and extensive movie trivia to recognize.
8-bit artwork has the tendency to be simultaneously reductive and compelling. For those familiar with retro gaming, it acts as a bit of a nostalgic flashback and for more contemporary audiences it serves as a playful and imaginative work of art.
