These surreal pop culture mash-up pieces by Dave Macdowell are wonderfully obscene and grotesque. He takes multiple characters from different movies and television and combines them in non-conventional ways.

The characters are handpicked out of everything from children's cartoons to adult programming and then thrown together. It is essentially what would happen if you combined random pieces of pop culture into a big ball of chaos -- except Dave manages to maintain many witty references and combinations in these impressively intricate drawings.

This pop culture mash-up art is definitely not for younger viewers as some drawings depict favorite childhood characters performing vicious acts. It's the kind of art that is the basis for the nightmares of young children.
