The new medium in art is gaming.  Game developers have become modern day rock stars by combining visual and audio effects thereby creating a new interactive experience.  And this medium is continually being pushed to see how far we can take it.

Recently, I’ve come across 5 amazing websites for people who love art and gaming.  Here they are:

Joseph Huckaby coded this beautiful application with artwork done by Mark Ferrari.  I love Mark’s quote here, “Some regard the arts as frivolous distractions, but from where I stand ‘art’ is at the center of human nature and progress—the essential source of even our most practical achievements.”  Mark Ferrari has instantly become one of my favorite artists.  Simply beautiful.
