Another one of those pixel & infographic artists? Well yes, although Jude Buffum does it mostly for the fun rather than for the “artistic” recognision (and also for the €€€ of course)….
Originally from Philadelphia he graduated from the Tyler School of Art in 2001 with a BFA in Graphic Arts and Design, where he went on to teach design and typography courses for five years. While he was a part of the design and illustration duo Headcase Design (2002–2007), Jude designed books for such pop-culture phenomena as the Broadway show “Wicked” and HBO’s “The Sopranos”, as well as the best-selling book The Baby Owner’s Manual, which he also illustrated.
His latest series of famous 8-bit characters were designed for the “Pixel Pushers: An Exploration of 8‐Bit Digital Media” exhibition at the Scion Installation L.A. Gallery (curated by Giant Robot) and that will be open until December 11th.
