Our friends over at Laughing Squid brought this to our attention. Here’s a Los Angeles-based artist named Joey Spiotto (who also calls himself “Joebot”) taking a look back at classic Nintendo video games and imagining them as if released as Little Golden Books. Prints of these cute and clever images are available to purchase online from Etsy.
Spiotto also sends up other games, like Portal and The Elder Scrolls (see above), as well as putting movies such the Nick Frost/Simon Pegg “Cornetto Trilogy” (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End) into the Golden Book theme. He gives us Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings as retro LP sleeves, re-envisions Hitchcock movies as Nintendo games, and more.
Very cool stuff. See more at jo3bot.com.
