    Just curious if there are any "famous" artists out there you wish did artwork for pinball machines? The inspiration for this post is me looking at some of the work that SHAG (www.shag.com) has done, both on his own and for the Disney Parks. I've always liked his style and have been curious how it would translate to a game.

    Any others out there that come to mind for people? Feel free to link examples of their work.

    How about a Rothko pin?

    Joey Cruz, is a local artist with just enough Crazy and flair to bring to a game!
    The color pieces are tops!

    Maybe he will get noticed!

    I wonder if 'artists' would make a good theme? Seems a bit silly, but could be an interesting idea where you are looking to paint art/populate a museum and have objectives and art built around the masters... Dali, Monet, Warhol, Liechtenstein, Van Gogh. With an LCD and video and lighting it could be amazing.

    Think something like the black and white lighting with coloring from Wizard of Oz, or effects like in the film What Dreams May Come or Pleasantville.

    Maybe like Worlds Fair Jigsaw by Rockolla....An LCD Screen of Artwork, and you collect the "pieces" to finish the painting for the museum, and on to the next.
    In this method, regardless of theme, and endless supply of images to create, from an assortment of shots, combos,
    and timers....I cant imagine getting bored of a pin like this, as long as the theme works for the player.

    I think its the reason games like Jigsaw, and World Series, are a blast to still play 80 years later.....

    Roy Lichtenstein
    Salvador Dali
    Rene Magritte

    Of course, they're all dead. I bet if Dali was alive, he could be convinced. After all, he did some artwork for a dream sequence in the Hitchcock film Spellbound.

    I like that, but I think it would maybe work better if instead of puzzle pieces it was a certain number of paints you need to collect, then components of the painting process... for example with lecthenstein it could be a background wash, then dark solid colors, then dots, then black lines.

    Puzzle pieces would look too constrained for something as organic as art. And the beauty would come from the animation of the painting coming together.... oh and then maybe the painting could even come to life and move (imagine wind blowing in a Monet)

    And the Disney cartoon Destino.

    I agree...paint by number, or as you describe would be much better!

    M.C. Escher pin would be cool.

    Wow! Never thought of that but TOTALLY AGREE

    #12 2 years ago

    Jim Phillips, the guy who did the art for Santa Cruz skateboards in the '80's.

    Robert Williams.

    Except for the ramp that keeps going up, forever and never returns to the flipper.

    Escher could be one of the artists in the museum pin I proposed.

    Hi,
    Sure that Boris (Vallejo) and Julie (Bell) may produce something heroic !
    www.borisjulie.com
    Evidently, on a fantastic theme or super hero.

    trilogybeer: Escher could be fun with balls climbing the playfield in reverse way

    VCJ who made great GFX for P&P would kill it!

    There is a fantasy artist named Michael Calandra. He could do a wicked art package on a fantasy themed pin.

    Or imagine if they used him to do a new edition of Game of Thrones

    A pin with Robert Williams artwork would be amazing. Did any of his album cover art for Appetite For Destruction make it onto the Guns n Roses pin?
