when you mix fandom and the interwebs, the results are unpredictable. you may end up with a beautiful work of fiction or visual art which transcends the very piece of shared pop culture that inspired it. of course, you could also end up with a crudely drawn depiction of r2-d2 having sex with chewbacca. you take your chances when you delve into the world of fan art, and this is true even with the slasher film genre. i recently took a safari through deviantart.com, using the search term “jason voorhees” as my guide. it turns out our favorite machete-wielding, hockey-obsessed psychopath has served as the muse for hundreds of visual art compositions. below you will find a few examples i found particularly awe-inspiring.
putting characters from vastly different universes together seems to be a common practice in the fan art sections of deviantart. apparently, so are weird pelvic positions and the misspelling of your favorite characters’ names.
another marvel character vs. jason, but executed a bit better. my money would be on jason… hey, are those jason’s intestines?
wtf? if you had a nightmare the first night you ate peyote and injected lsd into your eyeballs, it wouldn’t be this weird or disturbing.
this reminds me of dave mckean’s work, but it’s weird and cool and i kinda like it.
it’s almost valentine’s day, and jason needs love too. in the comments section, the artist ponders the question we’ve all asked ourselves… ” Why are sexy/sweet scenes so much easier to do with Jason than with Freddy?!”
another valentine’s day image from the same artist, this time with michael and freddy too. i like that jason’s mask can blush.
my little jason voorhees pony? well, i think we can safely say no one ever thought of that before.
i stand corrected.
is it weird that i find it disconcerting that the the face appears to be jason from part 7 but the outfit looks like part 6?
yes, that’s michael myers snuggling up to jason in bed.
that is wrong on so many levels.
why didn’t i think of this when i was a kid and my sister had all those barbies?
this is what you’d dream if you did that lsd/peyote thing from earlier.
i really like this one. i particularly like that jason looks more surprised than anyone else in the picture.
