Josh Cooley isn’t just an amazing talent, he has a sly sense of humor. The Pixar artist has created a gorgeous series of odes to classic R-rated movies, new and old, and has paid tribute to them in the style of a children’s book. And speaking of books, he now has one!
His book, Movies R Fun!: A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the Pre-(Film) School Cinephile is coming out on February 25th (you can get all the details from Amazon right here) and features his children’s book-styled versions of films like Jaws, Pulp Fiction, The Shining, and many more. They really are a great marrying of sweet style and scenes that are intense, raw, and very R-rated.
Check out a sampling of his work right here. And bonus: You can buy prints of many of these directly from him right here.
The Shining 1 of 8
A classic scene from Stanley Kubrick's classic, The Shining. Whether on film or in animation, those twins will ALWAYS be creepy.
Pulp Fiction 2 of 8
Yeah, this is just creepy done in this style!
No Country for Old Men 3 of 8
This movie would not be good for the kiddies.
Fargo 4 of 8
He pays an artistic ode to this, well, TOTALLY insane scene from Fargo.
Clockwork Orange 5 of 8
Ultra-violence? No thank you, but this print is pretty cool!
Drive 6 of 8
Yeah, not suitable for any kid's book, like ever.
Jaws 7 of 8
This Jaws print, well, it's pretty darn perfect.
The Big Lewbowski 8 of 8
Yeah, this ain't no fairy tale!
