The first time you see these caricatures by Alex Pardee, you’re not sure what to think. Until you read the message the artist gives behind his series, ICANS:

Why am I calling them “Icans”? Glad you didn’t really ask, but I’m telling you anyway. Well, because whether SOPA passes or not, I will continue to take any licensed character, or pop culture icon and do whatever I want with it for art’s sake, because ICAN. Also, I just want to conduct an ongoing experiment to see if ICAN take any cool icon from pop culture and make it way shittier by “re-imagining” it. So far, much like Hollywood does most of the time, the experiment is a super fun success!

Just goes to show you that you really don’t want to piss off a creative. Their responses can be so much more than you can ever imagine. Because they’ll do it in a much bigger way than you ever didn’t hope for. So, Governments everywhere, is this really where you want to take your copyright fights? Because they are a whole lot of creative people out there, and they’re just waiting to be heard.
