Enfu: Cute Grit
By Ken Taya
Each copy has been sketched in, signed, and hand-embossed by Enfu.
It's adorable, explosive and has more chibis than an Akihabara game store.
Welcome to the whimsical world of Cute Grit, the digitally rendered pop art debut by video game developer and artist Enfu. Comprised of over 1,000 illustrations, this fantastical collection explores the intersections between video games, art and the Asian American experience through the lens of Enfu's wild, east-meets-west style.
Favorite game villains, cartoon characters, icons and cityscapes come alive in a digital universe where Enfu unites the foreign and familiar in a warped, yet adorable world.
