Said organizer Jon Gibson, "Mario, Mega Man, Pac-Man, and Sonic are just as iconic as The Beatles to our generation. They are our childhood heroes, our babysitters, our most awesome fantasies - and it's amazing to see how wildly and diversely artists choose to interpret them, because every experience is a personal one."
