Heroes seem to get all of the attention in mainstream media, which is exactly why Carlos Hernandez has chosen to illustrate a delightful collection of caricatures based on pop culture villains. The talented artist scoured the furthest reaches of geekdom to come up with a series featuring bad guys from G.I. Joe, X-Men, Star Wars, Street Fighter, Transformers and more; but rather than depicting these evildoers as their usual imposing selves, Hernandez has transformed them into adorable cartoons. These drawings would give baby sloths a run for their money in cuteness.

Carlos Hernandez renders most of his images digitally and employs a highly cartoony style. He enjoys depicting all sorts of pop culture creations, though he always manages to put a wacky spin on their appearance. He even draws himself as a cartoon, looking very much like Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory.
