Pop culture gets colourful


We love our popular culture here at ShortList. It goes without saying that we get positively giddy over anything that enhances this love.

As such, we're big fans of these illustrations by Mexican-based artist Carlos Lerma.

A range of big screen characters have been treated to Lerma's 'colour by number' stylings, transforming their features into bold shapes and stark colour pallets. Darth Vader's mask is a particularly brilliant object for Lerma's technique, while Attack the Block looks fantastic in its psychedelic neon.

See more of Lerma's work on his site.
