Dan LuVisi has added another gruesome twist on childhood characters to his collection, this time a grotesque Muppet murder modeled after the Oscar-winning film ‘No Country for Old Men.’
LuVisi’s illustration depicts Fozzie Bear as the No Country hitman Anton Chigurh, originally played by Javier Bardem. Fozzie is even given Bardem’s iconic bowl cut hairdo and crazed facial expression. His victim is poor little Gonzo, who Fozzie Bear is strangling with a pair of handcuffs.
‘No Country for Old Muppets’ is a shocking but darkly comedic illustration that manages to effortlessly combine two very different pop culture fads: Muppets and awesome, gory gangster movies. The result is an unsettling twist on characters many people have loved since birth; diehard Fozzie fans will never be able to look their favorite bear the same way ever again.
