German artist and freelance illustrator Oliver Wetter dramatically alters beautiful mid-19th century landscapes painted by artists from Hudson River School by digitally adding fearsome kaiju, giant robots and other pop culture elements such as Howl’s Moving Castle. It just takes one enormous monster to transform one of Albert Bierstadt’s idyllic landscapes into an awesomely terrifying scene. Our favorite piece is AT-AT Among The Sierra Nevada, a surprisingly tranquil scene featuring a wrecked AT-AT rusting and gathering moss while a herd of deer pause for a drink at its remaining feet.
