Huh? Whaaa? What happened? What did I miss? Ok, this is one of those things that’s both FOR me and NOT for me. You see, I was a fan of the Sega Dreamcast (despite not owning one; I played on a friend’s console) and of Shenmue when it was released (again, I played it on a friend’s Dreamcast). I even got my hands on the Xbox port of Shenmue II despite not having an Xbox at the time; yeah, I had it pretty bad. based just on that alone, imagine how much I fanboyed when the Shenmue III crowdfunding campaign was announced a couple of years ago. Anyway, SEGA recently announced at FES 2018 that HD ports of Shenmue and Shenmue II are being brought over to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in North America and Europe, while being exclusive on PlayStation 4 only in Japan.

Federico Babina is a Barcelona-based designer who is the brain behind Archist, an illustration series of prints where buildings resemble the work of twenty-seven of the most famous artists throughout history in their signature styles. Many of Babina’s illustrations range from Picasso, Mondrian, Dali and Lichtenstein — to name a few — and each work of art is available for purchase. Think about it: what if Picasso had designed a jagged cubist structure? What if Damien Hirst utilized his trademark polka dots onto a sleek, machine-like modernist building? What if Piet Mondrian applied his interesting approach to geometry and color to the design of an apartment building? What if…well, you get the idea.
