Geek Art: He-Man Meets Guns N Roses In ‘Appetite For Eternia’

Masters of Paradise CityTake me down to the Paradise City where… I HAVE THE POWER!

Oh how I love a good mash-up.

Here’s a new one from artist Joey Spiotto, who took his two favorite things from the 1980s and found a way to put them together: He-Man cartoon characters with the classic Guns N Roses album cover for Appetite For Destruction.

The 13 x 19-inch print, which is on watercolor paper, is available at the artist’s Etsy shop for $25 and is listed there as “Appetite For Eternia” (it’s called “Masters of Paradise City” on his blog).

You’ll recognize the album cover, which has a cross background with skull faces on each point and in the center. The original cover had versions of the five GNR band members; Spiotto’s version has five characters from He-Man. He-Man in the center; to the right of him is Man-At-Arms; Orko is at the bottom (no face at all); Skeletor at the very top (with his own skull face). I don’t know who that is on the left, I would think it’s Teela, but the headpiece and coloring are wrong. [Update: it’s Trap Jaw!] The top banner reads “Masters Of The Universe”; the bottom one reads “Appetite For Eternia.”

I’d say if you’re like Spiotto and these two items are favorites of yours too, then this would be a pretty cool print on your wall.

By the way, you might remember Spiotto from our previous post here when I talked about his Crazy 4 Cult submission, a Firefly/Serenity-themed piece called “River Tam and the Fireflies” (which is also available right now at the artist’s Etsy shop).

  1. I think the one on the left is Lockjaw. At least I remember that being his name….
