Pop culture history is just as important as ancient history to some people, so Eduardo San Gil decided to fuse the two together in his recent series of illustrations. His humorous illustrations include pop culture characters imposing historical settings and adversely, historical figures imposing modern scenes.
Some of his photos include Noah directing his animals into a 'Pokéark,' which is the Pokéball replacement of his traditional ark and a viking boat that is made to resemble Barney the dinosaur. More "modern" scenes feature Jesus playing a popular fair game and Socrates and Plato battling each other like an arcade video game.
All of the images are comical, but tastefully done. Perhaps elementary schools should use similar methods to keep children engaged in their history lessons?
