Twisting Childhood Memories – Mikkel Sommer

In my next installment of “It's so wrong, it's right,” we take a look at this piece by a 21 year old aspiring comic artist/illustrator from Denmark, Mikkel Sommer. Sommer's art conjures up memories of fat Crayola crayons and Sesame Street coloring books, doesn't it? Except he's added a dark twist – by placing the SWAT team around this crayon house he's turned a sweet and innocent memory into something dark and mysterious.

“I wanted it to seem like the druggies inside the house were really fucked up. And what better way to show that than drawing everything around them like a kid's drawing. I had a fun time doing the research and practicing drawing like a kid. My mom found these really old and dried up crayons I had as a kid, so they were probably somewhere around 18 years old.” – Mikkel Sommer
