CARLOS ALBERTO TORRES
Don Quixote | The Video Game.
Digital illustration on canvas.
The piece is a result of literary analysis combined with retrograde graphic technology. Using Photoshop and Illustrator, the artist created a vision of what the novel could have resembled had it been filtered through early CPUs and finite screen resolution. The illustration shines as a playful retelling of the idealistic story elements found both in heroic retro video games and the timeless novel that parodied them.
