Could you use a few more watercolor portraits of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 cast in your life? If you answered in the affirmative, proceed directly to the works of artist Mark A. Fionda Jr. He's an illustrator with a wholesome, Saturday morning cartoon look to his art and some radical ideas for redesigning Darth Vader, Gizmo from Gremlins and more.
Some recent Mega Man and Moon Girl
work that Fionda has done, along with loads of fun Pokémon
/Dragon Ball Z
tributes can be found on his blog
. He's big on robots and film classics such as Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey
, and it's too bad that no one's currently recruiting artists to relaunch either of those as a new animated series (the old ones... could stand replacements), because Fionda would probably be a great fit for character redesigns.
Watercolors make almost anyone more fun, whether it's Vader or Slimer on the paper. Lay your eyes on those and a few of our other top Fionda picks down below.
