Charlie Brown has gone badass in this mash-up created by Justin Hillgrove for the “Icons and Influences” show coming to the Ltd. Gallery next April. All of the 30-40 pieces at this Seattle, Washington show will be pop culture tributes and parodies. These three images are a preview and include mash-ups of Peanuts/Evil Dead, Where The Wild Things Are/Studio Ghibli and Where The Wild Things Are/The Usual Suspects.
