The Poké Life: 1996 - Artist Matt Rockefeller Challenges You To Find All 95 Pokemon

Matt Rockefeller is a freelance illustrator and visual development artist who received his BFA in illustration with a concentration in animation at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Born in Tucson, Arizona, he escaped the heat by delving into the worlds of comics, animation, and video games, and has found them a source of inspiration in his art. He specializes in creating images that communicate ideas, and he strives to be a storyteller in all aspects of his work.

The Poké Life is a zine about the year Pokémon took the world by storm - 1996. The zine was created as part of a 2014 art show at Light Grey Art Lab called Stacksfeaturing 60+ artists creating zines based on one important topic from one specific year.

Rockefeller explains:
The games captured the imaginations of thousands, transforming their environments into Pokémon playgrounds. Each spread depicts a part of the world in which even the people and objects appear to take on the likeness of these adorable, addictive creatures. 95 are hidden within the pages, challenge yourself to find 'em all!
