Mashup Monday: My Little Pony / Alien

The best kind of artistic mashup is one that combines two fandoms from different ends of the spectrum. H. R. Giger’s Aliens are notoriously scary, like ‘pee your pants’ scary, but when designed to look like a My Little Pony, all I can think of is how much I want to cuddle one. 28 more words

Mashup Monday

Gothic Fetish


Venice Beach, CA (2015)

T-shirt artwork inspired by Swiss airbrush artist H.R. Giger who designed the Alien movie creature and spawned urban goth aesthetic.

It recalls certain aspects of fin-de-siècle decadent art (Edward Burne-Jones, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Charles Baudelaire): the vampiric woman, the baroque serpentine motif, an overpowering gothic mood, and S&M death fetish. 16 more words
