8-bit illustrations of 8 short stories

Oliver Miller created these neat digital illustrations in the style of 8-bit graphics of video games from a bygone era to accompany the opening lines of 8 famous short stories. His explanation is amusingly tongue-in-cheek, but this was an artistic expression that combined two of his interests as an English-major-MFA-card-carrying writer and a former “nerd who huddled in a basement, with his nerd friends, clicking with a mouse to play Bard’s Tale II.” As a former nerd I too appreciate this greatly.
