Pulp Noir Nintendo Novel Artist Returns With Samus From Metroid

Artist Ástor Alexander, who brought us fantastic interpretations of Link, Midna, Mario, Peach, and BioShock Infinite's Elizabeth on pulp noir novel covers, has returned with a new piece of Samus.

Alexander's Samus piece is more of a romantic sci-fi novel, but it definitely belongs on a shelf next to his previous work.

You can can check out more of Alexander's work on his Tumblr, Behance, and DeviantArt pages, which has a lot more than just video game focused art.

Graffiti Artist Shok-1 Shows The World Pac-Man’s Insides

Pac-Man has been endlessly gobbling up power pellets for over 30 years, but have you ever stopped to think about where they all go? Inspired by the icon himself, graffiti artist Shok-1’s new print “The Consumer” finally answers this eternal question, giving us our first look at the yellow puck’s insides.

“The Consumer” made its debut earlier this year in Germany as the mural seen in the header image. The artist created the translucent X-Ray effect using freehand techniques; no stencils or tape were implemented.

Prints of “The Consumer” will be available starting December 5 on Shok-1’s website, but you’ll have to act fast. The run is limited to 160 prints. For more information and a look at some more psychedelic art, check out Shok-1’s website
