New exhibition Multiplayer is celebrating the rich visual language of computer gaming, showing that there’s a lot more to it than pixels and neons.
The works in the show are from illustration agency JSR, and illustrators featured include Allan Deas, Benji Charnock, Carla Lucena, Lydia Shireff, Marguerite Sauvage, MiddleBoop, Raid 71, Shaun Mills and Simon Wild.
Gordon Reid, aka Middle Boop, says, ‘I would certainly say the use of colour in contemporary illustration has a lot to thank retro video games and its packaging for.
‘Also in terms of style, some of the major [illustration] players have built their careers on video games styles.’

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
