The Deliciously Nerdy Art of Beth Turnsek

eye candy


Good morning! You may recollect this adorable genderswapped Mario family, as it has been floating around the internet for a while now, since being brought to life by animation student Beth Turnsek. But yesterday Comics Alliance featured some more of her work, and we couldn’t resist pulling out even more for you to enjoy.

Speaking of adorable, here’s Tintin. What? Tintin wasn’t your first crush? Huh. Strange.

But Turnsek has had a take on many of our childhood favorites, including our childhood favorite ladies like Samus,


another Jessie,

And Mouse (from Reboot, you philistines).

Then, of course, there’s ponies.

I have to admit that recasting Bambi with Fluttershy is freakin’ inspired.

But lets round out the round up with some art history.

Wait, no, lets do it with a hilarious facial expression.

You can find even more like this at Turnsek’s DeviantArt page.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
