Move over, Marilyn

Have you ever looked at Princess Peach and thought, "hmmm, she really reminds me of Marilyn Monroe"? I can't say I have, either.

I'll certainly be thinking that from now on, though, thanks to the following piece of pixelated art--title: "The Seven Year Peach"--which was created by London-based designer and illustrator Aled Lewis (aka fatheed).


To see more of Lewis' stuff, check out his Flickr photostream, his tumblog (Aled Knows Best) or his website.

Amazing. There's something about pop culture/video game crossovers that just make something in me light up!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, me too, Justin! I'd love to have some of Lewis' work framed and hanging from our walls -- or plastered across the front of a t-shirt :)

Haha, I like this.

Let's just hope no little piranha plants pop out of that pipe!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Ha! That would be an interesting -- and horrific -- sight, wouldn't it, Marcus?

I never took her for a skank :P

Bryan Ochalla said...

Are you callin' Marilyn a skank?? ;)

Drew Mackie said...

I mean, in the truest sense of the word "skank," Marilyn wasn't exactly known for chastity.

Bryan Ochalla said...

Yes, you're right, Drew. I guess I just tend to reserve the word "skank" for people like Snooki or CoCo (http://dlisted.com/taxonomy/term/146).

Ohhh! It's her skirt blowing up! All this time I was too scared to comment because I thought she was wearing one of these : http://tinyurl.com/3zl8pzp .

I agree with Justin, I love art that crosses over pop culture and video games, I don''t know why.

Wow, Trxd -- now *that* is an image you don't see every day! (The one you sent a link to.)
