Just in time for Halloween

Artist Ashley Anderson is a man after my own heart. I mean, we both like art and we both like video games. Oh, and we both like Pac-Man--as evidenced by this rather spooky piece:

This isn't the first time the Atlanta-based artist has been inspired by Tōru Iwatani's most famous creation. Early last year, for instance, he conjured up the following (titled, appropriately enough, "Cherry Ghost"):

Speaking of Pac-Man, the folks over at Namco-Bandai recently sent out a number of new screenshots of their upcoming PSN/XBLA release, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX. See them in all of their neon-hued glory here.

Fun! I love the top one. I've never seen a Pac-Man ghost actually look eerie before. How novel.

Yeah, that's why I liked the top one, too, Justin -- it's actually kind of eerie/spooky!

This one -- which is a mash-up of a Pac-Man ghost and Boo from Super Mario World -- is pretty cool, too --

This gives me so much idéas! I'm getting ready to make some video game-paintings for our new white walls and so far I've made up my mind about having a big red shyguy (the Yoshi's Story-ones for extra details), and now I'm pretty sure it will also be some kind of Pac-Man ghost up there. :)

Ah, I'm glad this post was useful to you, Starfighter! I'd love to have some game-inspired art on my walls, too, though I'm not sure my husband would go for that. Maybe just in my office?
