COME PLAY MY GAME by BUTCHER BILLY
The Good Butcher is back with another serving of mismashed delectables, designed to please the appetite and confound the senses. Asking the ages old question: “will it blend?”, Billy combines random films, famous celebrities, iconic music albums, and any other prime cut of pop culture that’s easy to slice into one big lumbering sewn-together Frankenstein GIF. You can find prints, cards, and clothes of these designs over at Billy’s Redbubble.

While looking at Scott Skahfee’s minimalist art, you may remember his typography from a few months back, I started thinking about all the hours I had spent playing the games that these characters star in…
And then I realized: it’s Friday! And, it’s a three day weekend.
So, what are you playing over the extra long weekend?

INSTAGRAM USED TO BRING VIDEO GAMES INTO LIFE
We’ve seen plenty of 8bit IRL before, but Mel Marcelo’s series brings a new twist.
He uses Instagram to take the photos and then photoshops in the 8bit awesome, creating some really impressive images that look stunningly realistic.
Some personal favorites are Link in the Apple store and the characters from Wild Gunmen hanging out in the Taco Bell. Both are great examples of the subtle details Mel infuses into his designs, like creating pixelated shadows, to make the images look virtually realistic.
Visit Mel’s Instagram to see his complete collection of 8bit goodness.

ART OF MUD!
Don’t let the name fool you. The artist may go by the name Mud but their work is anything but.
I wonder what made Link so upset. Perhaps it is the burden he bears.
Follow Mud! on Flickr and Blogspot.

STAR WARS Vs. VIDEO GAME FIGURES by CHICAGO TOY COLLECTOR
The vintage line of Kenner Star Wars figures is memorable in the “so bad it’s good” way, which is all the more reason to inflict all other fandoms with the same cheesy veneer: for starters, Dan at Chicago Toy Collector repainted and reassembled a few of the classic figures (can you recognize some of the parts?) to portray a custom Super Mario Bros. and 8-bit Mega Man line. Fingers and tentacles crossed in the hopes that Dan continues this series and eventually makes some Kenner-ized Castlevania and anthropomorphized pokemon figures (don’t pretend like you don’t want to see that… stop it, stop pretending right now, a Jawa would make a very convincing Pikachu).
