Artist adds video game and sci-fi characters to thrift store paintings

Those who frequent yard sales, Goodwill, or flea markets are used to seeing artwork for sale. Sometimes for $1 or less and what isn’t bought usually ends up in a landfill. That’s where artist Dave Pollot comes in.


Pollot buys the art, adds video game or sci-fi characters into it, and puts it up for sale on his etsy store.

I have to say I am particularity fond of his Futurama art, especially ones which include a giant Bender, but the Luigi one you see above is just as great. So is the one of Bowser below.

Check out all of his work through the links via IGN.
