Comical Illustrations of Pop Culture Mash-Ups

Kazakhstan-based illustrator Evgeny Yakovlev, aka lost-angel-less, uses iconic characters from pop and nerd culture to create funny, illustrated scenes. Yakovlev shows the other side of the dark side in which Storm Troopers use the scare-them-straight method of parenting by telling chilling stories of Yoda, their version of the Boogeyman. The witty artist also creatively imagines scenarios that stage various characters from different worlds in the same frame, making for rather humorous outcomes. In a Looney-Toons-meets-Star-Wars mash-up, Wile E. Coyote no longer has to go chasing the teasing Road Runner because his hired bounty hunter Boba Fett has captured the menacing bird for him. And, I never thought of it before, but how heartwarming would it be if Edward Scissorhands had the chance to meet Wolverine and feel a little less like an outcast and more like he belonged?
