Artist Illustrates Famous Pop Icons With A Horrific Twist That’ll Haunt Your Dreams

There is beauty in horror. 

While most of us might get scared by gore or terrifying imagery, you can’t deny the fact that those moments hold a weird beauty. And that is the beauty that this artist wanted to capture in his illustrations. I think many of us already know Mike Winklemann. After all, he was the creator of everyday challenge where artists are tasked to draw every day and he has done it for straight 10 years without missing a single day. 

Not only that but he also helps with concert visuals for big-name singers like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Eminem, and many more. However, he is a graphic designer at heart and his unique style is nothing we have ever seen before even though we have seen hundreds of art pieces every day. 

You can marvel at the beautiful imagery for yourself by scrolling below.

#1 What if pigs weren’t the prey?

#2 Disney Castle overtaken by disease.

#3 Humans wouldn’t take kindly to thiefs even if it is just honey.

#4 Nothing gets by the eyes of a trained hunter.

#5 Worship at the altar of Mickey Mouse.

#6 Building monuments for the things once forgotten.

#7 The end is near and let nature take it’s course.

#8 There is always going to be something bigger.

Mike is a big fan of mixing fantasy creatures with reality. To juxtapose real-life situations that we deal with every day while also adding a fantastical touch that draws people in. Creatures like Mickey Mouse might be beloved but the artist likes to recreate them in the likes of Godzilla or monsters around us. After all, we do build monuments for these and honor them, even worshipping them when there are so many problems in the world.

Perhaps it is a way to escape the issues of real life. Maybe we all want to stay in the fantasy world and not have to see the carnage that lies all around us. There is no right answer or solution. It is just a question posed by the artist. It is for us to decide at the end of the day.
