Imagine all the crazy mash ups of images from different iconic series that you have seen, and multiply it. That is what James Hance does, taking inspiration from childhood and throwing together famous pop culture posters to include a character from another series, with great results. Simon Pegg recently tweeted about the artist, which brought a huge selection of his art to our attention. You can see above a sample of what he does, and you can join me after the break to hear his own description of his art and more selections, including a take on North by Northwest with Cary Grant running from a TIE fighter.

As you can see, Hance has a knack for taking iconic images and adding pure joy to them by adding in other characters. Many of the prints can be bought for only $10, which is pretty awesome. You can check out the site here and this is what he had to say about his creations:

“I’m inspired by television and movies from my childhood. It’s funny how you watch some of those things today and wonder why you were so obsessed with them at the time. I remember the Fonz being SO much cooler than he actually was. My paintings are basically just placards screaming ‘Childhood! It was amazing! I want it forever, please!’ I paint mainly in my pajamas, watching the Muppet Show and eating cereal. I’d like to think it shows.”

    Good Christ, the Beatles running from a Dinosaur! Two of my obsessions in one painting…gonna have to get it. The only thing that would make it better is if the Dino looked like the Rex from Jurassic Park!

    FYI: off of James Hance’s website. Might strike a cord for anyone looking to do a pay-it-forward of relentless cheerfulness!

    Hey, friends!

    I’m usually very private about my private life, but I really need your help right now – I have a beautiful 6yr old daughter who lives with her mum in Palm Coast, FL. She’s the most imaginative, caring, hilarious little girl I know and she’s on her way to a Children’s Hospital in Boston ( http://www.childrenshospital.org/ ) for specialized diagnostic testing for a rare intestinal disorder she has suffered with since birth.

    The medical bills are astronomical – I’m asking that, if any of my ridiculous doodles have made you smile, please consider donating a couple of buckaroos to help Maddy get back on her relentlessly cheerful feet? Let’s show her how many friends she has :)

    I’ll be uploading original paintings and whatnot in the coming weeks with proceeds going to the trip & bills – I do appreciate your time :) Please tweet, retweet, facebook and shout this link through rolled up newspapers, every effort counts!
