Nothing is sacred in this collection of creepy childhood illustrations by Berk Ozturk, especially the most innocuous of cartoon characters; they have all been morphed into fodder perfect for inducing nightmares.

Berk Ozturk is a Turkish illustrator whose specialty is taking beloved children's toons and dragging them through the dark recesses of people's minds to create these surreal and disturbingly satisfying images. Yup, that's Pinocchio's nose stabbing Geppetto in the eye and Pikachu gnawing away at the remains of Ash Ketchum. Probably the most disturbing image of all from Berk Ozturk's collection of twisted illustrations, though, is Mickey Mouse hanging himself.

Other characters Berk Ozturk used as muses include Hello Kitty, Totaro, Mario, SpongeBob SquarePants, Freddy Kruger, Chucky and the logo of Pringles.
