Ben Chen has been in the game for a while, and chances are you’ve seen his work. He’s been a part of Threadless since 2009, so you can see his designs adorning T-shirts across the globe and even own one for a small price. And you should want to… With comic themes mashing together some of your favorite cartoons and pop culture characters, I haven’t seen one yet that hasn’t made me chuckle.
Each illustration carries a thematic muted color palette and a playfully simplistic style. But his true power isn’t in the drawings, it’s in the wit. Crossing themes from Mario Bros. to Cast away, you get a whole new look at some old favorites with the help of his creative cross cutting. Wait till you get to the one with Mr. Potato.
