Modern surrealist artist Sachin Teng is an artist that is very hard to ignore. He creates poignant illustrations that has a bit of social commentary and a bit of whimsy. He takes us on a journey that can be childlike and innocent to complex and dark. These images are imaginative and thought provoking for sure. He has such a unique style that would translate so well as an anime.
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.
Graphic designer Darkchoocoolat aka Florent Rousseau has been creating some super fun nerdy art. 8 bit fruits and veggies can brighten up my day. Pop culture anything always sparks my interest.
You should probably eat five fruits and vegetables a day to be in good health. Its easy when they look this delicious and adorable.
This health bar is super clever. Not a bad idea if you’d like to see some of your video game characters zombiefied. Something like this would be pretty useful in a game when you’ve died. Plus you gotta think that zombies have different character abilities. Sounds like a fun game to play if you ask me.
What about everybody’s favorite Mario Bros mushroom? What about all your other favorite characters? The Eye of Sauron, Link, Robocop or Darth Vader? Mushrooms have to dress up for Halloween too ya know.
Lets not forget about our favorite Breaking Bad scalawag Walter White. Those of us that watched the show know he makes a killer breakfast for Walt Jr so why cant he make a delicious bread? Actually maybe his bread would taste a little meth-y.
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.
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
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……
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.
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!
Illustrator and character designer Jerrod Maruyama is creating some pretty amazing work. He’s drawing stuff in the style of kawaii (all things cute and adorable).
Most pop culture icons are subject to his cute-ification. Breaking Bad, Hellboy, Star Wars and his most popular series, Disney characters. I know most of my art postings have been “food illustrations”, but my inner geek is dying to post my nerdy loves. You have been warned….
These Disney characters are cute enough for any adult but would be totally adorable in a nursery.
Because I cannot post all of his wonderful work you’ll have to take a look at his website yourself. The little geek inside me gets super giddy when I see his work. He really captures the spirit of Disney characters very well. I feel like all of his illustrations has a sweet kawaii feel that I like so very much but also maintains a minimalist vibe. All of his character design is very consistent. Something an obsessive collector (such as myself) goes crazy for. I mean who could say no to this little smiling spam. Awww….
(i have contacted the artist to use these photos, hes super nice so please buy his stuff!)
