I miss living in or near New York City. The culture, the people, the cheap hot dogs, and the night life are unmatched almost anywhere in the world. And now there's this

Looks like some clever street artists are at it in the City that Never Sleeps, using tile-mosaics to put tiny little Marios under street-level water hookups.

Do you ever see any particularly cool videogame-inspired street art in your area? No? Go make some!

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
