If you remember these creepy pics by Kavan the Kid, you’ll be excited to know: he’s released a new series with samurais and superheroes. The Mountain and the Viper (hint: Game of Thrones) are seen battling it out, a Samurai fully painted in Kill-Bill-yellow-and-black is present in a number of dramatic scenes, and it is interesting that Kavan the Kid portrays many of these characters. He gets deeply involved in his craft similarly to Cindy Sherman who portrayed various personas in her acclaimed conceptual photographs.
