There are some things you enjoy as a kid and just never stop, from superheroes and cars to distilling Kierkegaard into easily digestible essays. No, wait. Bubble Tape. Packing their art full of the stuff you loved as a kid; eboy.
Started by a Vancouver/Berlin team of computer graphics designers, eboy arduously assembles hilariously detailed posters by mashing together individually pixelated pieces of pop-iconography and images that any 8-year-old would love (cars, girls, robots, robot monsters); the result is a series of playfully abstract representations of actual and fantastical cityscapes like Tokyo and not-Everett, respectively. Real places getting the eboy treatment include a Los Angeles that looks in on SoCal's car/movie culture (traffic jams, police chases, zombies) from behind the Hollywood sign; a densely packed New York that tops the city's skyscrapers with classic ads, a firefighter's helmet, and an 8-bit King Kong; and the darkly-industrial Baltimore Docks where a mechanical Godzilla's on the loose, dock workers wear bikinis, and Sobotka still can't get the canal dredged. Make-believe locales range from Maker Faire (an ode to a convention for geek artists), to one called Superbronco where a robot dinosaur and mechanical At-At style walkers wreck a city, to the tech-brand plastered FooBar, also a popular night spot for all the people Mr. T takes pity on.
eboy also plasters it's pixels on bags, skins for all kinds of tech-toys (the iPhone, Kindle, Wii, etc.), and has teamed with Delicious Toys on a iPhone game who's mesmerizing use of the phone's tilt technology will let you do something else you never stopped enjoying: Big League Chew. No, wait. Wasting time.
