The term “mash-up” has become pretty common vernacular in recent years.
The technology available to even casual users is sophisticated enough to make it relatively easy to amalgamate disparate things to produce a new and unique creation.
Such as this delightful depiction of Abe Lincoln as a Ghostbuster. He ain’t afraid a no ghosts, nor no secessionists.
Shouldn’t work, totes does.
But these accomplishments pale in comparison to the efforts of James Hance, a fine artist who’s remarkable skills with paint and brush raise the level of mash-up to, well, to an artform!
Not only does Hance meet the mash-up criteria by mixing Doctor Who with the Iron Giant, or Star Wars with Hitchcock, but he also does a remarkable job of honoring and recreating the styles of classic artist like Picasso, Munch, and Rockwell.
Humorous, heartwarming, deftly executed – his talent and playfulness are in deed a marvel to behold.
