Beautiful Monsters

This month on A Blue Shelf And...

When I'm waiting for programs to do what I told them to do at work, sometimes I do Google searches to find neat pictures.  I believe I explained that in a previous post.  Anyway, being a child of the late 80s and 90s, there are some old tv shows that I remember vividly with very fond feelings.  When I find a great artist who re-imagines the characters of the show and makes me want to watch it all over again, I am very appreciative.  As I am not one such artist, I can't do such a thing myself, but I'm going to point out a couple of greats that I've found recently that just made my day.  My apologies in advance for the fact that they'll all be in a line from top to bottom.  I'm still working on how to do this better and since I don't do it often, I'm not getting much practice.

These Gargoyles pics can be found at immarart.deviantart.com, formerly digitaltofu.deviantart.com and I think they're just fantastic.

Following in the same vein, these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pics can be found at davidrapozaart.deviantart.com and they are likewise fantastic.

Both artists have a host of other work that is well worth a look.  I would definitely recommend them both.  I'm thinking we need to do some reboots of old shows and hire these guys to do their stuff.  Darker and even more awesome versions of already awesome concepts.  Enjoy!
