From Disney Mermaid Mugs to Banknote Logo Art

These examples of comedic logo art take the recognizable logos of worldwide brands and twist them in weird and wacky ways.

The logo art can have a political purpose. For example, in DesignCrowd marketing manager Jo Sabin's series of logo illustrations, the BP flower logo drips in oil and a Coca Cola bottle bears the figure of an overly rotund person. Others are simply for amusement. Remakes and doodles on Starbucks logos, for example, are wildly popular activities for artists and amateurs alike. Some of the logo art has social activism in mind -- a campaign aimed at reminding women to do self-exams for early signs of breast cancer uses the Facebook and Twitter logos to compare frequency of self-exams to frequency of social media check-ins.

Whether it's to support a cause, offer criticism or create a piece of brand new art, this logo art takes the world's biggest logos and makes light of them.
