Creative Mondays 93 – GTA 5 Atari Version
“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
Any of you with a desire for video games or gaming in general will know that the next instalment of the Grand Theft Auto series is out tomorrow. Hell even if you don’t know that much about video games you’ve probably heard about this one coming. Well as luck would have it, I picked up my very own copy from those awesome guys at ATARI. Can’t wait to hijack a car and speed down the streets of Los Santos!
Okay, so I didn’t quite get my hands on an official copy of the game but I was inspired to create my own retro game art for the upcoming release. The game cartridge was created entirely within Photoshop and the cover was a photo manipulation of several images I found on the stock.xchng website (my home away from home).
I decided to turn the whole thing into a retro ad showing off the true beauty of the 80’s!
