Sims and art meet in New York

Museum exhibit to showcase art-student projects based on the world's most popular people simulator. GR's own art critic weighs in

Lindsey Balbierz, BFA Illustration

"Lindsey Balbierz shows how a Sims player can become anything they wish in the game. In this case the 'user' can become both female and animal, giving the image a 'freak show' quality as bird-woman."

Tyler's take: These appear to be preliminary sketches for an illustration meant to be finalized as a Giclée (ink jet) print. Given the crudeness of the roughs, all we can tell is that the piece is poorly designed and the artist has never played The Sims.
