  1. Wow. These are seriously good, and funny. You captured a seriously perfect moment for Doc Brown and managed to make Gene Wilder look like a pedophile. That’s not easy.

  2. Kelly

    I love these! I’m most impressed with Belushi. The rest are very entertaining. Clooney almost resemble Burt Reynolds. Great job, John!

  3. You’ve done this sort of thing before, haven’t you?

  4. NOw you know I love your site John, it always cheers me up, but, come on man you seriously need to get out more!!


    Great job as always!

    • Ha… hey, now!

      I was joking with a friend that doing the MS Paint thing was so much more fun than doing regular Photoshop work because if you mess up an MS Paint thing, who cares? It’s not like you need to take the time to go back and fix it. The worse they are, the better/funnier they look.

  5. Ahhahah E.T. is my favourite looks like a poo with eyes. But seriously nicely done. Got to love Paint.

    I’ve been thinking about doing an art post … Should really get on that

  6. I didn’t realise Nurse Ratchet could be made to look any more fantastically frightening than she does in the film, but alas you’ve outdone yourself again sir. Your creations will haunt my dreams tonight.

  7. This was really cool. If you have an iPad they have a great app for this kind of art. I went to an iPad exhibition at Louisiana in Copenhagen where they showcased this kind of digital art!
