Artist Recreates Norman Rockwell Paintings with DC Comics
byKaitlin StanfordOct 06, 2014
The iconic images of painter Norman Rockwell have graced countless magazine covers and hung in living rooms all over America over the last 50 years. So popular are his slice-of-life scenes that they've also been recreated several times over by budding artists for decades.
The latest artist to throw their hat in the ring? Ruiz Burgos, from Granada, Spain, who is cleverly inserting our favorite DC Comic heroes and villains into Rockwell's classic "Saturday Evening Post" covers. The results are pretty eye-catching.
Like this image of Clark Kent, getting his shoes shined in 1938.
Or this one of Zatanna in 1964, showing off her impressive magic tricks. (Burgos says she's based on Katy Perry, which we can totally see.)
Here, the Joker no doubt flees the scene of a crime with his equally devilish sidekick, Harley Quinn.
Want more? Burgos shares his images, as well as the story behind his design process, over on his blog.
