Inspiration is food for artists. They could connect worlds together, which otherwise share no relation with each other. These wooden-works inspired from video game characters aptly make a good example of it. The artist connects wooden art with the virtual gaming world.
Justin Christensen, a wood worker carved some cool pieces of wooden art work after video game characters like Mario, Donkey Kong etc.
These works were available for buying on Etsy, but it appears that the store is closed due to heavy flux of customers on the onset of holiday shopping season.
Anyway, these pieces would make good gifts for your dear ones. Kids are most likely to find them adorable. These works are well appreciated by users on social media site like Reddit and Facebook as well.
