Greek artist and t-shirt designer Teo Zirinis is the clever mind behind HandsOffMyDinosaur!
His art has a great blend of puns, pop culture references and whimsy.
Whether its inanimate objects doing something silly, a play on words or your favorite character doing something out of character all of his work is great fun.
Pizzas have scary tales to tell around a campfire too.
The delicious truth about Bloody Mary.
I’m not sure if I’ll ever look at gumball machines the same again.
The Iron Fry Throne. Only the one true cheeseburger may rule the seven kingdoms.
Dhalsim brings the heat to this ‘Street Barbecue’. We all knew E. Honda would come to the party, being a heavy man that enjoys a steak or two. I’m happy Zangief could make the party as well.
Collecting those crystal blue rupees.
The true danger of burned toast.
A cheesy pun.
“To be, or not to be: that is the question.” What else can Skeletor do at Castle Grayskull besides read tons of Shakespeare?
What about Ring Kong? This play on words is so simple and amazing. I wonder if Peter Jackson would be down to throw a quick film together. I would so be there!
I can easily say Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one of the greatest movies of all time. I mean whats more amazing than animated characters mingling with real life people? I went crazy for it when I was a kid. I still get pretty pumped when I see animation fuse with real life objects.
Artist Alex Solis does amazing illustrations that are unique, fun and playful.
This series is called Stealing My Food
He also is doing a series called Famous Chunkies. He illustrates recognizable pop culture figures as little fatties. I like the consistency of this series but it also has a strong message.
Usually when unhealthy eating is discussed it tends to come off as preachy and a little annoying. I think Alex Solis raises awareness without it being too much to digest….(see what I did there?)
Even though they are simply adorable, it gives you a little food for thought. Some of these drawings make me think about cheeseburgers a little more than usual. Then it immediately makes me rethink eating that cheeseburger.
Ariel/Flounder/Sebastian from Little Mermaid
Link from Legend of Zelda
Ryu from Street Fighter
Darth Vader from Star Wars
The cool thing is that he experiments with different art styles and its never the same thing over and over. He constantly posts super entertaining stuff on Instagram @alexmdc
Real life Fruit Ninja
Pencil Death: A little morbid and a little cutie
I grew up playing Nintendo games. Some games were ridiculously hard to pass. I remember I used to get so mad trying to beat King Koopa. Even as an innocent little girl I would day dream of making koopa in a delectable turtle soup. And Ganon from Legend of Zelda…..that awful awful pig. These were the villains of my childhood.
Illustrator Jude Buffum created these 8bit butcher diagrams. These hilarious infographic charts satisfies the carnivore and nerdy side of me. Plus who hasent thought of seeing these monsters hacked up into bits…..8 BITS……
King Koopa aka Bowser-Mario Brothers
Where’s all your fire breathing abilities now?! Huh, jerk?
Ganon-The Legend of Zelda
Ganon’s lust for power can never be satisfied. Just as my love of Ocarina Steak can never be satisfied. Ganon was a jerk and should totally be eaten. I’m certain he would taste like pig or possibly like wild boar. This is what he gets for harming my beloved Link and Zelda.
Two little swimming foes-Mario Brothers
I would gladly eat them because I love sashimi and they were always little annoying punks anyway.
Chocobos- Final Fantasy
These are fast little birds that get you from place to place, which leads me to believe the meat would be a little on the tough side. This one is kinda sad because they were usually pretty cute and friendly little critters. But hey, I’m a sucker for chocobo nuggets.
Awww…poor poor Yoshi. But you know, he does eat some delicious fruits so that “tongue stew” must taste delightful. An adorable dino delicacy.
Maybe you shouldn’t have run off a cliff. Stupid…adorable Yoshi.
Jude recently was the illustrator for a cookbook called “Ultimate Dining Hall Hacks” where he created exploded diagrams for various recipes. I recently ordered this book and am excited to see it, especially because I’m a big fan of unique food art and also am a fan of cooking.
Check out his other work, most are in the 8bit style too which is super fun. I’m a sucker for anything nerdy like infographics, diagrams and charts. Jude really did some creative work here. Buy some of his stuff he is super nice and totally deserves some revenue. So get on it nerds!
