Good Old 16th Century, And Its Love For Rocket Powered Warrior Cats

The 16th century was seeing warfare get revolutionized. Gunpowder had shown up on the scene and changed warfare from the way humans had been accustomed to fighting forever. With every drastic change, come new strategies, and a good number of them are likely to be wacky; like these illustrations from a 1530 war manual that advocates using animals to deliver weapon payloads.

It would be incredibly difficult to hold the position while the artist painted over her, and then pose for photographs.

Artist Paul Ribera‘s illustrations present a view of those cartoon characters as strung-out drug addicts. It’s really weird… but mostly terrifying.
