Continuing the series of posts about highlight artists (well, according to The Word of Me) from this year’s Oranje, we come to Cameron Oehler. Cameron, who I’ve just now discovered sells his work on ThinkGeek, makes functional items like cutting boards and coasters out of carefully arranged wood tiles depicting icons from the world of video gaming. I was initially attracted to his booth by the large, Hyrule Triforce boards, and then it just kept going from there.
In person, cameron’s work exhibits a very splendid level of craftsmanship, which in a craft and medium like his is something I having nothing but the utmost respect for given that I utterly suck at it.
Cameron’s fine and geek-pleasure work is done under the name “1337motif” (or “leet motif”, short for “elite motif” for those not familiar with the rather common gaming lingo there), which fortunately has a splendid blog over here, and you can buy him through ThinkGeek and Etsy.
Maybe when I get around to getting some new kitchen stuff I’ll upgrade to that Triforce board myself, it’s sharp.
