If there's anyone out there painting pin-up versions of some of the world's most beloved female cartoon characters, I'm glad it's Jason Chalker. Not only does he manage to capture the likeness of each character in a mature manner and with great artistic aptitude, but he also maintains a level of respectability for each character illustration, choosing not to oversexualize them the way many amateur artists would.
Jason Chalker is a Texas-based artist and he runs 'The Manly Art Blog: The Art and Ramblings of Jason Chalker.'
Implications - Consumers enjoy seeing familiar pop culture characters in different contexts because it satiates their curiosity as to what these characters would look and act like when taken outside of their particular settings. Corporations can similarly re-imagine various products in different contexts in order to capitalize on consumer curiosity.
