Read no further if you think your childhood visions of pop culture icons might be shattered forever, because artist Mike Mitchell takes some of the most-loved pop culture characters and puts them in ironic situations. After all, they are “Just Like Us” right? Well that is what Mike Mitchell thinks – and we love his interpretations of what our favorite characters do when the cameras are not rolling.
In his series ‘Just Like Us’ that’s currently exhibited at Gallery 1988: Melrose till April 28th, 2012, characters—such as Magneto, Dumbo, Bambi, Ariel, Ewok, Batman, Poison Ivy and Robin—get into unique situations that make them seem more human and a bit less like the unbreakable heroes of our childhood past.
Some of these are freakin’ hilarious, look:
