The horrors of Pokemon made fleshy, furry, real

California artist Gavin Mackey gave life to Pokémon, and our nightmares, in a series of digital art pieces located on his blog and DeviantArt.

You can see 39 of the pieces collected in this Imgur gallery, or head over to his pages to see some of the other original, though perhaps less horrifying, art he's created, like a more lifelike Lion-O from the Thundercats.

If Pokemon are your cup of tea, you may want to read up on Black market Pokemon and one man's quest for the perfect landshark.
