NYCResistor Art of the Game Party

Two saturdays ago, NYC Resistor presented Art of the Game, an art show / party showcasing over a dozen works of game-inspired art. Though I’m a bit biased, being one of the featured artists, I have to say the event was a huge success. Every piece on display was personally very inspiring. Here are two flickr photo sets from the event:
