Konsta Ojala’s Disturbed Cartoon Drawings

Finnish illustrator Konsta Ojala‘s new drawings are large and frightening.  Seriously, nearly measuring at five feet on each side, Ojala works the aesthetic of disturbed (and perhaps drug induced) doodles expanded to obsessive sizes.  His drawings often feature familiar cartoon characters taken to their logical misanthropic conclusion.  From a syringe-clutching Mickey Mouse to a bleary-eyed and violent Bart Simpson the characters seem to be reappearing after spending a few years on the streets.  Rendered in harsh black and white and imposing sizes, the drawings are unsettling while still strangely nostalgic.
