Geeky Heroes Boiled Down to Basic Blocks


Artist Adam Lister creates awesome watercolor paintings of iconic pop culture figures using rudimentary block shapes. The most meta of his images has to be the watercolor of Bob Ross – though I’m having a hard time making out any happy little trees.

Despite their apparent simplicity, each image clearly conveys its subjects, while giving them a sort of 16-bit pixelated sensibility to them. He’s done versions of Darth Vader, Superman, Boba Fett, Batman and Robin, Iron Man, and even Forrest Gump. But my personal favorite is Kirk and Spock:

You can find more of Adam’s pieces over on his website – where you can get limited-edition 5×7 Giclee prints of many of his images. He’s even got a special running through today (2/2/14) where you can grab them for just $30(USD). And be sure to check out his gallery of original paintings here.
