The Dude Abides (in 8-Bit Graphics)


As cult classics go, 'The Big Lebowski' is perhaps king of them all. The tale of a bowling and beer-loving underachiever, it's the sort of story to which we all can relate -- or at least enjoy watching. It's no surprise then, that the Dude has become a sub-cultural icon, as most recently shown by a series of art panels done in the pixelated style of 8-bit video game systems.

Classic game consoles like the Nintendo Entertainment System ingrained that low-resolution style into the public consciousness, and three Lebowski panels, made by Jude Buffum, celebrate that style with portraits of the film's characters: Jesus, Walter, and, of course, the Dude, himself. Sadly, there's still no game that allows you to join in their antics, but maybe that's next. [From: Blame It On the Voices]
