The cartoon, comic and movie icons in Ben's illustrated work come with an unexpected dark twist. His humorous and sometimes gory graphic drawings remind you of something that you've seen before, because you probablt have. Creepy and hilarious re-mix illustrations by Ben6835.

Who says you can't be a kid again? Here we have a custom made, touch sensitive Question Block Lamp inspired by the iconic Super Mario Bros Nintendo game.

Super Mario Bros. might be one of the most recognizable games/characters in all of the world, on some Michael Jordan/Tiger Woods level. So this morning when we saw this paper animation of various Mario games by animator Eric Power, we registered a victory for... stop-motion paper animations.

Nintendo has long been known as the casual gaming company. Even though they are the origin of the majority of the technology used in modern gaming, they have always lacked the audience of the core gaming community.
