8-bit Ellen Ripley

You know what my office--i.e., our rarely used guest bedroom--is missing? A pixelated portrait of Sigourney Weaver (aka Ellen Ripley) as depicted in Konami's Aliens arcade game from 1990.

Unfortunately, although it seems my favorite Atlantan artist, Ashley Anderson, has created just what the doctor (me) ordered, I doubt I can afford the graphite-on-paper portrait (below) he produced. (Assuming it's even up for sale, of course.)

Oh, well, at least I can look at it--via Anderson's Flickr photostream--whenever the fancy strikes me.

Well, the good thing about graphite and paper is that you can reproduce it pretty easily, not that I'm suggesting a forgery. Maybe a tribute of your own!

Yeah, I guess. I'd rather have the original, though -- if I had the choice. Oh, well, I'm not sure the piece would work in our office anyway...
