Boneface’s Art Makes Pop Culture a Little Bloody

Liverpool-based artist Boneface’s “about” section on his website reads:

“the things that make me right for this job…
maybe they’re the same things that make me wrong for everything else.”

staple diet: videogames / cartoons / comic books / crappy b-movies

When artist statements can sometimes be too wordy, too convoluted, and too full of themselves, Boneface’s not only summarizes and represents his style effectively, but also works as a piece of art in its brevity and tone. Many of his pieces from 2014 have featured some well-known characters in pop culture, including the Daft Punk duo, a Crazy88 member, and a Foot soldier from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Boneface’s style is reminiscent of another popular British artist’s, Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of Tank Girl and the Gorillaz. The designs are very sleek with an attention to small details that help build the characters’ punk-influenced styles.

Boneface has also ventured into animation, directing and animating the Queens of the Stone Age’s video for “…Like Clockwork” last year (which you can watch below). Check out some of Boneface’s pieces below, and be sure to visit his website for more illustrations.
