'Collage of found game imagery'

The words above are used by artist Ashley Anderson to describe his latest creation (below), which appears to be a concert poster of some sort.

The Clap 2010 12-22 Color

Although I generally consider myself to be an ├╝ber retro-gaming geek, I feel more like a retro-gaming noob when I look at Anderson's poster. I mean, I know the images of Scrooge McDuck near the center of the poster were pulled from Capcom's Duck Tales title for the NES, but that's about the only one I can ID.

Do any of you know the origins of the rest of the poster's images?

The fish are, I think, from Black Bass. The melting eyes look like modded Earthbound enemies from Moonside, which are modeled after Dali's clocks. And...the goofy looking guy standing on the words looks like he could be from Maniac Mansion...but he also looks really Weird Al-esque. The girl's faces in the corners I think are from one of the Ninja Gaiden games.

Other than that...no.

Ah, all of those sound good to me! I feel like I've seen that bow somewhere, too, but I can't remember where...
