8-Bit Illustrations From the Land of Strange
If mysterious illustrator Uno Moralez had created video games a few decades back, they would have simply blown our minds. The bizarre creations have a look unlike anything else, often mixing themes from film noir to gothic, anime to Indian religious iconography – all made with a distinctly pixilated 8-bit style. Not only are these intricate scenes highly entertaining… they’re often seriously creepy too.
Uno Moralez (if that even is someones name), often creates equally mysterious stories, stacking images to form comic like progressions in plot. In one example, two girls go wandering in the night, find a frightening creature in the woods and slay it with a sword. Out of the creatures belly crawls a nude boy who they take home and fall asleep with. It is the kind of story reserved for the pages historic mythology or even our more mind-bending dreams.
