Did you miss GamesBeat Summit 2021? Watch on-demand here! 

I am an artist and a gamer. I have been working on a project called “Nerd Love,” in which I try to make a new piece of nerd-themed art every week. They come from several different media, and I thought it would be fun to share the ones based on video games. All of these pieces are made by hand with cut paper. The goal is to do a whole year’s worth of nerd collages, so there is a lot more to come.
