Kiersten Essenpreis Depicts Hated Characters on Their Days Off

The villains shown throughout films are pretty much only shown within the context of that single film, but what do these hated characters do when they're not promoting death and destruction? In his new work, illustrator Kiersten Essenpreis has found the answer.

These illustrations depict different movie villains on their days off. The Joker helps Banksy finish a new piece. Leatherface carves a wooden sculpture using his infamous chainsaw, and Norman Bates pushes his skeletal mother on a swing. Each of these satirical drawings is minimalist in design but extremely effective.

By addressing popular characters from cinema culture, Essenpreis has found a way to relate to people, both young and old, on a societal front. People understand these drawings because they understand the characters within them. For that reason, Essenpreis's new drawings are not only funny, but indisputably clever.
