Justin White's Busted Up Pokémon

Californian illustrator and designer Justin White has been creating a series of Pokémon portrait illustrations.

The idea was to capture each character after a long battle
recuperating inside their pokeball. Or maybe I just wanted to imagine pokemon in a lot of pain. This was really just a fun way to keep active and creative.

You can find all of them on his Flickr stream or in his portfolio. While you’re there, also check out his other great projects including the Mario Brothers portraits and the Alphabet vector illustrations.

Wondering if I can fit the word “illustration” into this article one more time. Done. Enjoy!

    This is too funny, I always thought pokemon was the most bizarre and cruel game. When you really think about it these cute creatures are forced to battle like a cock fight and after that they are imprisoned in a small red and white ball??? HAH! Call the RSPCA!

    I would love this on a T-shirt

    I know. It’s all rather nuts when you think a bit too hard about it!

    Incidentally, Justin has a whole bunch of cool shirts on Threadless. No Pokemon ones though, sadly. Nintendo probably wouldn’t like it very much…
