As more of dog persons we started a while ago our project on famous pets in 8 bit with dogs. But the time has come to pay tribute to famous felines. Though less numerous than dogs, the group includes many illustrious characters that grin, love lasagna, chase small creatures and are altogether loveable.
All the cats are signed at the bottom of the poster and at the bottom of this post. You can also buy a print here and here, should you be so inclined.

Because of a gaming night and a birthday party we failed to finish today’s post but here’s a little teaser:
The rest to come soon.
To celebrate another Oscar ceremony we would like to share with you a series of posters that we designed for a pre-ceremony movie viewing party. The party is held in an old movie theater that each year gets decorated with thematic posters for one evening of Oscar-related fun.
We chose to combine illustrations from famous movie posters with a few statistics about the award ceremony. We had to scratch our heads a little to come up with enough recognizable posters for movies that got at least a nomination (it surprised us, actually, that it wasn’t so easy) but in the end managed to gather a nice collection. Then we drew geometricized versions of Clark Gable, Uma Thurman and company (and had a lot of fun doing that).
(The original poster titles are at the bottom of the post, if you want to try to guess them on your own first.)
A series of posters with statistics:
The original posters in the theater.
You probably figured it out on your own, but the movies whose posters inspired us are the following: Pulp Fiction, Gone with the Wind, Cabaret, Singin’ in the Rain, High Noon, Forrest Gump, Dirty Dancing, Braveheart, The Graduate, Pretty Woman.
The project was made for Podpunkt studio.
And here is our third illustration of the Day in Life series, with yet another Victorian character as the hero.
A Day in Life series continues today with its second installment. (Here‘s the first one.)
A while ago we were asked to do something for a magazine and had a free choice of what exactly that something would be. We did a series of three illustrations, playing with famous characters.
We’re showing this one first to celebrate the return of the British show Sherlock (we spent a good part of Christmas time watching the first two seasons).
With Christmas sadly behind us (but the spirit of Christmas joy, and laziness, still lingering) today we’re sharing a few documentary photos from the process of making our Christmas card this year.
The card started as a geometric grid in Illustrator, printed out and patiently cut out by (my) hand with a vast selection of tools you can see in the .gif below (let it load). Then we folded the figures and glued elements that needed gluing.
Then came the always-joyful stage of setting the scene, which in all its documentary glory looked something like this:
And yes, Ikea bits and pieces are ever so useful for our creative purposes.
Finally, after some mysterious Photoshoppery the end was reached for all to enjoy:
