Artist Jeff Nichol has come up with a series of prints where Breaking Bad characters, most notably Walter White, take their place on a deck of playing cards. We are missing the full set, but several of the characters and references do find room on the cards. Perhaps, we might get a full deck in the near future. For now though, the Breaking Bad playing card prints would do just fine. Several of these illustrations are available as prints at the artist’s shop on Society6.
It would appear that famous monsters have a sexy side, or at least that’s what they would like us to believe while they strike these “seductive” poses. The calendar of sexy monsters by artist Erika Deoude features 12 famous movie monsters, all trying their best to show off their seductive poses somewhat inspired by pin-up art.
Artist Chris Panda has a series of illustrations where cartoon characters go under X-Ray. Drawn in the style of coloring book sketches, they show off a rather disturbingly skeletal side of popular characters.
Here’s Disney characters, most notably the princesses, taking their time to settle down in the world of Final Fantasy. Illustrations by artist Geryes.
Harmless War by Tang Chiew Ling presents weapons and war gear in action, only rather than being armed with explosives or bullets, these weapons are armed with things as “harmless” as leaves, chocolate and dessert.
Playing up to the Harry Potter series, artist Jessica Martinez has created a set of animated gif images for all seven books of the series. The images focus on a primary event or object in the related book, and animate it for full effect. It would probably be more like how all images work in the Harry Potter world anyway. As an extra, each image also has Harry Potter’s lightning scar; sometimes clearly visible, and sometimes hidden well enough to make you search for it.
A humorous set of 20 posters, these illustrations by Simon Sek capture the 20 districts of Paris and the clichés, stereotypes or simply what the areas are famous for associated with them. The posters take a minimalist approach, trying to describe the area with a simple image or object.
Illustrations from artist Christina Hess show animals playing the roles of important characters of human history. These illustrations are part of her e-book Animals From History. The illustrations are also available as prints and a calendar on the artist’s Etsy shop.
If we imagined superheroes as manatees, we probably wouldn’t be doing the extremely good looking manatees any favor, but superheroes would get to show their skills a bit better. I have no idea how they would do this, but we’re sure someone could cook something up; probably a world where Aquaman is relevant. The illustrations are the work of artist Joel Micah Harris.
Holding a steady job isn’t easy for a superhero. You can change in closets all you want, but the manager is going to be pissed off when the reporter can never be found when it is time for work. Superheroes on part-time jobs that were better suited to their personality would make better sense. Jobs that don’t interfere with their work, don’t need them to take on a new persona, and also let them do their superhero thingy on pleasure.
