Flnz Lo has created a series of Pulp Fiction illustrations that feature the film's main characters, their weapons and the Big Kahuna Burger (a fictional burger chain mentioned in several of Tarantino's movies).

The characters -- Mia Wallace, Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega -- are identified only by the silhouette of their hair cuts, coupled with an iconic quote. Underneath Wallace's signature black bob, for instance, it reads, "Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to feel comfortable?" Meanwhile, Vega's slicked-back long hair is accompanied by the instantly-recognizable quote, "Play with matches, you get burned." Looking at these illustrations is almost like fondly remembering an old friend.

If anything, Lo's series reinforces what an impact the mobster film has made on popular culture.
