Three quarters of the book is devoted to pixel-based work, and the other quarter to vector images by Peter Stemmler. The images shown include eBoy’s trademark eCities. Inspired by a love of buildings and architecture and the challenge of endlessly recombing different urban elements, these are painstakingly detailed and abound with monsters, seedy bars and porno cinemas. Another eBoy innovation is Peecol, an online project which invites users to recombine elements of images to form new ones. Inspired by popular culture–shopping, supermarkets, televisions, LEGO, computer games–eBoy’s imagery is colorful, funny, subversive and startlingly original.
