Art You Can Wear
Posted on Monday, May 7 @ 21:06:11 Eastern by Joe_DodsonWe're taking a break from our regularly scheduled fake news to bring you this! But what is it, you ask? Why, it's a genuinely cool picture of a little girl in a wasteland looking at a projection of the good ol' days, back before her friends were either crows or skulls.
Now, there's a whole web 2.0 backstory involving an upcoming game (Bioshock), a T-shirt contest, hundreds of contestants and a winner, but I think the real story here is this picture and the ones it beat.
After surfing through all the "Gaming News Blogs" (ugh) with stories about birthday cakes, Halo 3 Trailers, and unsubstantiated rumors that a fighting game might be coming to the Wii (A fighting game? Really?!), I stopped at this puppy and just looked for awhile.
The artist's name is Budi Satria Kwan (a player's name, both Buddy and Booty), and his shirt beat out something like 150 other designs. You should check them out, too, because some of the rejects are wonderful. Like this one and this one. Hopefully, the game lives up to its shirts.
