Imagine your favorite cartoon characters - the Disney characters that give you warm, fuzzy bubbles inside and the Pokémon you remember as your best friends from your nerdy childhood. Now throw them directly into the middle of the apocalypse, and you get the work of Badland Models.
Japanese artist Y. Nakajima, AKA Badland Models, makes models of iconic characters in Mad Max style. Nakajima takes legendary characters from an array of Japanese and American series and throws them directly into the middle of a dingy desert hellscape. The artist takes what were once cute and nostalgia-inducing action figures and modifies them to be realistic and creepy apocalypse toys. Badland Models will both inspire and haunt you with dirty, badass renditions of models of characters in the apocalypse.
