Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Earlier this year, artist Ashley Anderson posted on his Flickr photostream a number of pieces inspired by food items found in video games.

Well, the Atlanta-based artist is at it again--although this time he's focusing on weapons found in video games.

Along with a grenade from TMNT 3: The Manhattan Project, a knife from the Castlevania series and an MP-5 from Rolling Thunder, Anderson has reproduced--using acrylic and poplar--the pistol from Contra Force.



This "Pixel Pistol," as Anderson calls it, can be purchased through the artist's Etsy.com shop for $50 (plus shipping).
