There’s nothing like a good mash–up, and today brings with it a special one to behold.
Artist and cartoonist Charles Forsman has taken one of the most simple and innocent bits of nostalgia in Charles Shultz‘s famed comic strip, Peanuts, with Charlie Brown, and fused it together with the relentless oceanic terror that is Steven Spielberg‘s classic, JAWS.
The mash–up was so popular that the limited amount of 11″ by 17″ prints that Forsman had available were gone in the blink of an eye, which is rather depressing for those of us who see the genius and want to own a piece. But never fear””Forsman is pondering a second print run if it gets enough attention, so let him know how badly you want it on the Twitter…or at least ask him to send me one!
You can see the full Peanuts/Jaws mash–up below now.
Forsman also has a Raiders of the Lost Ark done Popeye style mash–up, as well. You can follow the link above to head to his site and see more works.
Here’s the whole thing. Click a couple times to make it super–sized, if that’s your preference.
