The coming of Cat-a-Lactus, pop culture devourer

I know very little about the Cat-a-Comb series by Brazilian illustrator Maicon Costa. I’ve highlighted a few comic book pieces here but he delves deep into geek culture for this series.

Is he building a body of work to show in a gallery exhibit? Does he intend on selling this pop art? Who can say, but he’s posted a lot of illustrations. (I lost count after 50)

Not into cartoon cats? Check out his cool Super Mario illustration.

The bio from his Tumblr feed:

I’m Maicon Costa, a designer and illustrator from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Maicon = MCN.
I work on advertising the focusing on graphic design, advertising and illustration.

Well Maicon, thanks for sharing!

Who pwns the Ponymen?

“You colts don’t understand. I’m not corralled in here with you, you’re corralled in here with me!” – Jakeshark

Watchponies vs Ponymen – the debate still rages. But everyone agrees, this is a great mashup. Bonus: I’ve discovered a My Little Pony subculture who are having a fun time mashing up the Ponies with comic book movie trailers.

Since the vast majority of people won’t know both Watchmen and My Little Pony, the players are:

Pinkie Pie is perfectly cast as Rorschach
Twilight Sparkle as Dr. Manhattan
Applejack as Nite Owl
Spike as Ozmandias
Rainbow Dash as The Comedian
Rarity as Silk Spectre
