Bloody’s Adam Dodd sent me over to Twisted Sifter, a site who caught wind of the coolest art series I’ve seen all year.

Asks the site, “Have you ever been to a thrift store (think Goodwill or Salvation Army) and noticed that they usually carry a small selection of landscape paintings? Artists Chris McMahon and Thryza Segal decided to inject a little fun into these discarded works and give them a second life by adding monsters to the scenic landscapes.

The trick is to match the paint originally used (e.g., acrylic or oil) and try to blend the monsters into the original scene as if they were always there. It can be a challenge if the original is too textured or old but the results (below) speak for themselves.”

Check out some of the insanely cool works of art below, some of which are available for purchase.. Which is your favorite? I’d hang these in my basement (if I had one).

    OMG, these are great. Really adds some interest to Bob Ross and his fucking happy little road paintings.

      Droolbear, i agree these are very cool. weirdly enough the one with the giant brown monster (on all 4′s walking through the wilderness) for some reason reminded me of your profile pic (the creature from PROPHECY!!!) before i even saw it on your profile comment. such an awesome, underrated movie.

    These are great. Such a wonderful use of technically proficient, yet woefully dull art. Wish I had thought of this myself.
