Artist Makes Your Childhood Icons Twisted and Nightmare-Inducing

Or not, in some cases. We know from Sylvain Sarrailh‘s previous set of illustrations that, while he’s good at reimagining childhood favorites in such a way as to make them completely terrifying (Ariel), a lot of his illustrations are just… pretty damned awesome, full-stop. To wit: His take on The Legend of Zelda. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it’s the first one behind the cut, and you definitely want to see it.

Angry Birds Decides it Wants Some of My Little Pony‘s Cake

Rovio, parent company of Angry Birds, the video game-and-everything-else franchise featuring suicidal birds destroying the homes of kidnapper pigs (sometimes in space, as Star Wars characters), has rolled out its newest branch of the feathered family, Stella. Featuring a “feisty” lady lead and her “passionate pals,” could this be the game maker taking a step back from “boy toy market” oriented fare? There’s isn’t too much we know about Angry Birds Stella yet, but what it says to me so far is “we want to market to girls without actually saying ‘girls’,” and that’s pretty interesting.

Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury, Rovio Has Turned You Into An Angry Bird! This Feels Weird. [VIDEO]

It wasn’t too long ago we saw a hologram version of the late Queen singer Freddie Mercury perform at the London Olympics. That in and of itself rubbed me the wrong way but now Rovio, creators of Angry Birds, have turned the singer into one of their animated fowls. Yeah. This is strange. Take a look and see what you think. There is at least one good thing about it – it’s for a good cause. According to THR, “The video raises awareness for the special Freddie For A Day fundraising evening hosted by Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor at which, for the second year, friends and stars will gather at the Savoy in Freddie’s honor, to remember him and raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust – Fighting Aids Worldwide.”
