Artist Wil Hughes Shows How Pop Culture Icons Would Look In Real Life, And It Will Give You Nightmares

Australian digital artist Wil Hughes, who studies animation at Griffith University in Brisbane, has a unique talent; he turns beloved, usually family-friendly pop culture icons into nightmarish demons that look like they clawed their way straight out of Hell.

If you’ve never been scared of Homer Simpson, Where’s Waldo, or Spongebob before, you will be now – though, let’s be honest, we were all a little creeped out by Ronald McDonald to begin with. Through his masterful use of shading, he creates realistic textures that give his horrifying portraits a 3D look.
