Every year more games and game-related products are given as holiday gifts. Everything with a Nintendo or PlayStation label sells like hot cakes. But while children are spoiled with toys like Pokemon, Skylanders, Minecraft and Lego games the adults oftentimes have to make due with 'useful gifts' like socks, cook books, aftershave and perfume. Not this year! We present you our "Cook & Becker Video Game Art Holiday Buyer's Guide", the gift guide for the older gamer and art and design enthusiast featuring fantastic artworks and illustrations of your favorite video game or concept artist. Presents that will last a lifetime. The ideal gifts for Christmas or Thanksgiving.
Decorative. The Last Of Us
The official concept art prints from the award-winning The Last Of Us are very atmospheric. Top concept artists like Makiej Kuciara and John Sweeney drew a lot of the beautiful designs for this video game. The prints with the character Ellie have always been very popular, but beautiful works such as University Building, Broken Home and Lakeside Vista also fit perfectly with this time of year. If your budget exceeds $100 we recommend choosing the Diasec + Dibond finish for these artworks.
Bold video game art can really come to live in a modern design interior. Prints of video games like Mirror's Edge and Okami in particular are popular with fans of design and make ideal gifts. Many prints from our new collection of classic SEGA art prints will also look very nice in a modern home.

- Shadow of the Shard (Mirror's Edge)
- Above it all (Mirror's Edge)
