PORTLAND RETRO GAMING EXPO RECAP
After spending all day yesterday at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo (PRGE), I have to say they really put on a great show. There were so many classic games to play, retro goodies to purchase, and exceptional music (thanks DJ Switch!) that I just didn’t want to leave! The real surprise though, were the number of local artists that turned out for the event.
While I was familiar with most of their work, seeing it in person was a whole different experience, especially the work of The Wooden Arcade. Their pieces are suprisingly light and much more vivid and eye-catching in person.
Check the captions for the people responsible for this fabulous art and stay tuned for interviews and more of their work in the near future.
Here are links to the artist’s sites:
