Bright editorial illustrations reminiscent of pixelated computer game graphics

When I first spotted these illustrations by Ylya Yod, my mind immediately jumped to retro computer games, or perhaps Steven Lisberger's epic Tron. With a Tetris-like charm and 1980s colour palette, the work is both vintage sci-fi and futuristic at the same time.

Yod is an editorial illustrator who studied at EESI (European School of Image, France), securing a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art with an emphasis on Illustration and Photography. Working with a variety of magazine clients, both online and in print, Yod has a distinctive style that translates across every piece. See more of his work at
