Childhood Cartoons Get Scary Realistic

Dave Rapoza is a man with a talent for taking treasured memories from my childhood, and bringing them to life in such a fashion that I’m likely to have nightmares about them.

In this gallery, you’ll see his realistic interpretations of Ninja Turtles characters (but not the turtles themselves surprisingly), Thundercats and Samurai Pizza Cats and Super Meat Boy thrown in for good measure.

I’m looking forward to see what he comes up with next. Which series do you think this style would lend itself well to?
