This Artist Creates IKEA Instructions on How to Make Horror and Sci-FI Movie Characters

©Instagram,nothinghappenedtoday

As a huge fan of all things horror and science fiction, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE these illustrations.

They come to us from an illustrator named Ed Harrington who lives in Virginia.

Among other artworks, Harrington draws characters from horror and sci-fi movies as though they were instructions from IKEA.

The end products are totally awesome and also pretty funny, if you ask me.

Let’s take a look at Harrington’s work…you might never look at Freddy Krueger the same way again…

1. Don’t move, dirtbag!

RoboCop for the win!
