From Superhero Cartoon Mashups to Robotic Painters

Remixes and mashups are a common theme throughout the top September 2015 art and design ideas. From office chairs that you can nap in to pillows that resemble rocks and reimagined cartoon characters, these art and design creations are boldly experimental with form.

In the spirit of challenging what you think you know about beloved cartoon characters, household objects and body art, artists and designers are pushing conventional forms with hybrids that combine one or more ideas.
