The zombie genre has somehow managed to endure throughout the years despite what sometimes seems like over-saturation.
With constant remakes and rehashes it could easily get stale, but at this moment in time it’s riding strong, with shows like The Walking Dead still grabbing people’s attention and keeping the myth of the zombie alive.
A big element in keeping this genre alive is the mash up, where we see one genre/fandom smashed into another to form something even better in certain cases. Sometimes it works (like the humorous movie Cockneys vs Zombies) and other times it fails (the awful Vampires vs Zombies film comes to mind). This latest art mash up by French artist Kasami Sensei falls quite easily into the nailed it category.
His reworking of Disney characters into other pop culture creations is amazing. We’ve seen some of these Disney characters before cast in Game of Thrones style, now the characters are re-imagined into a Walking Dead setting. See how many of them you can match up to their genre counterparts.
Kasami has a soft spot for the Disney universe and has made numerous visits there with his artwork, putting the beloved animated stars into some very strange situations. For example, this selection of pieces shown below show a slightly more sinister take on Walt’s characters. Be warned, these are not your parent’s cartoons.
Finally we have a lighter side of his work with two great Game of Thrones inspired pieces which will get any fans of the show in the right frame of mind for Season 4.
There is plenty more to see on Kasami’s DeviantArt, so anyone wondering what new mash-up invention Kasami is going to concoct next can look there for more details.
