Gavin Mackey’s Pokemon Redesigns Will Haunt Your Nightmares [Art]

Somewhere between the original, manga-looking Pokémon that we all know and love and the bigger, shinier fantasy re-imaginings that we’ve also seen, lies Gavin Mackey’s vision for the super-powered critters. In Mackey’s art, they take an insidious turn toward resembling Renée French subjects or that creepy baby in David Lynch’s Eraserhead.Mackey was taking requests. Unfortunately for you late-comers, his commissions, taken through his deviantART account, seem to be closed for the time being. He still has his finished pieces posted in his gallery there, however.

He’s made a Gastly, Bulbasaur and Charmander, as well as SpongeBob SquarePants’ pal Patrick Star and Yoda. These paintings may very well change how you use your Poké Balls for the rest of your Poké combat career, but they are rather mesmerizing, so go have a look. And if after doing so you can no longer look at Mew without thinking of Dr. Evil’s hairless cat, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
