Cartoon characters like Pikachu, Mickey Mouse and the Minions are drawn to be adorable, and we can't help but think happy thoughts when we look at them because of their round shapes and smiley features.
This intentional and inherent appeal makes it hard to turn cutesy characters into something truly nightmarish without causing the character to lose their core essence, but illustrator Disse86 has proven he's up to the challenge.
Disse86 has turned the Minions into grinning mutant monstrosities, Totoro into a scary woodland creature, Pooh into a ghoulish little blood eating bear-thing and poor little Tweety Bird into a fang-faced horror.
And yet each character remains instantly recognizable and somehow manages to retain elements of their original personality despite their gruesome new look.
