I love these 8-bit illustrations which combine modern life with pixelized characters of 80’s popular video games, cult movies, politics etc. Their author, artist and designer Jude Buffum takes his inspiration from the surrounding world and his illustration technique is incredible.
Just can’t get enough of them.
"Mushroom Recession" with most popular 8-bit character Super Mario.
Bowling-themed series based on the Coen brother's cult film The Big Lebowski.
Two pieces based on Office Space

A Blurb about Kanye West, T-Pain, and Lil Wayne using autotune software to manipulate their voices.

Piece for Shepard Fairey's Manifest Hope Show that coincided with Barack Obama's Nomination at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
Piece about the impact of Dick Cheney's corporate ties on the military strategy in Iraq.
