It seems that the Internet is bursting with the work of Uno Morales today, a Russian illustrator who’s work is… eclectic, to say the least. Uno’s work looks like the byproduct of pixel art and manga, a dark and mysterious world where the most insane things can happen. But he’s also a super talented guy no matter what you think of the content. To think that he can create these scenes with only black and white pixels is fantastic. It’s also great to be able to feature work that’s just plain weird on the site. I’m gonna have to start doing that more.

To learn more about Uno check out this interview over on The Comics Journal. Here’s a snippet.

Collins: One of my favorite things about your work is the way it blends imagery from different cultures into something new and challenging. I can see the influence of Soviet art and traditional iconography, but also manga, the imagery of David Lynch…

Moralez: Yes, quite so. It’s what I told you about. Those are some of the parts I’m made of for today, and it flows naturally into the images in [my] pictures. Images of Soviet Russia were sort of imprinted on me from my childhood, when our impressions are the brightest and memory is tenacious. The Japanese are somewhat close to our Soviet culture, probably because of the common denominator in the social structure. I like Lynch’s films very much for their romanticism and mystery.
