Amazing ‘Little Golden Book’ Movie and Video Game Illustrations

By April 10, 2013

So I came across the most amazing illustration mash-ups recently when I was on a marathon internet perusing spree…video games done in the style of Little Golden Books. The artist is named joebot and prints of these delightful illustrations are available on his etsy site.

Aren’t they incredible? So I only saw 3 and went searching to find more when I came across another amazing artist doing Little Golden Book mash-ups this time with iconic and twisted movie scenes. Innocent things getting all twisty and dark is one of my all time favorite combinations, so it was definitely love at first sight. The artist, Josh Cooley, is a Story Artist at Pixar Animation Studios and he put all of his illustrations in a book titled Movies R Fun which is currently out of print. Here’s the cover:

BUT check out his website, because the book will be re-published by Chronicle Books SOON and will feature new material. I will definitely be buying it when it comes out. Here’s some of the awesome you can expect:

Are you in love with these as much as I am? Tell me your favorite Little Golden Book in the comments! I love The Pokey Little Puppy!
