Showcase: Cartoony Consoles by AmazingTrout

You know what I don't love? Those caricature drawings sold by artists on boardwalks, where they take famous people and distort their most prominent features. To me, they're like the visual art equivalent of puns: trying to get a laugh in the cheapest way possible (side note: I don't hate puns, but you have to admit they're the exact opposite of high-concept humour.)

And yet somehow, when that same principle is applied to videogame consoles, my monocle pops out and I find myself heartily approving. Click the link below to check out more of AmazingTrout's console artwork, including the Sega Game Gear and Atari Lynx.
