Alas, poor Cable.

Alas, poor Cable.


Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool treading the boards as William Shakespeare’s Hamlet? Why not. A fun digital creation inspired by the old masters.

Product Info

The thought of Deadpool cheekily holding the skull of Cable, HAD to be done. As Mr Pool likes to dress up, it only seemed right that he rubs the head of his once enemy while wearing the crown of Denmark.

As Sir Anthony van Dyck and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s era overlap the period of Shakespeare’s work, it only seemed right to take inspiration from their work for this piece.
Thankfully these old painters give us a snapshot of the fashion from their time. Perfect for that theatrical Shakespearean feel.

Having reworked a few of the old masters, other characters of popular culture presented themselves and things became more adventurous. This collection of prints began with Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘A Lady with an Ermine’. The lady in question was replaced with Ellen Ripley and the ermine with a small alien. It worked, and soon Spock, Yoda and Deadpool all followed suit.
