Gaming Icons “Cartooned”

In a similar way to InfiniteContinue’s abstract Street Fighter art, SoundOfDesign’s (Ty Lettau) simplified “Cartooned” collection takes character’s we’re familiar with and puts a unique twist on them. His tribute to Legend of Zelda features an array of portraits, which you can check out above.

We discovered these gems via Flickr, but a bit of digging shows that Lettau is actually a design manager at Adobe – further evidenced by his excellent art.

Want to see more? Lettau has a slew of sets in the cartooned series dedicated to gaming. Among the featured are Punch Out, Mega Man, Super Mario Bros, Street Fighter, and more. Cartooned Dhalsim may be my favorite. Check them all out here.
