‘Creepy Pokémon’ Illustrations Reimagine Pikachu & Co. As Nightmarish Monsters
By Kylie Woon, 13 Oct 2017
In his ‘Creepy Pokémon’ series, artist David Szilagyi invites viewers into a nightmarish parallel universe where Pokémon have been reimagined as ghoulish creatures with rotting flesh and rows upon rows of razor-sharp teeth.
Formerly a video game concept artist and illustrator, Szilagyi has since switched lanes to pursue his personal passion: “creating surreal nightmare fuel, and crafting worlds and stories based around them,” the artist shares on his Patreon account.
His horror-inspired Pokémon illustrations draw inspiration from the books, films and video games that Szilagyi grew up with, including the chilling Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark series, the films of Guillermo Del Toro, and games such as F.E.A.R, Silent Hill, and Final Fantasy.
View some of his spooky series below, and be sure to follow Szilagyi on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
