Mass Hysteria is back for a second run

Mass Hysteria 2
100% Soft

Last year artist Truck Torrence, who also goes by the pen name 100% Soft, kicked off a new series of illustrations called "Mass Hysteria." The goal was to take some of the wildest, most crowded scenes in film history — from the news channel gang war of Anchorman to Beatrix Kiddo’s battle with the Crazy 88 — and turn them into adorable prints. Now he’s back with a second run: and this time he’s tackling more than just movies.

Torrence’s second stab at "Mass Hysteria" does indeed include classic films, with cute and cuddly renditions of the Mos Eisley cantina from Star Wars, as well as an epic battle from Lord of the Rings and Mad Max: Fury Road’s explosive automotive combat. But he’s also expanded the series a bit, adding in TV shows like The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, and even the original NES version of Super Mario Bros. (You may also recognize his style from the official Star Wars and Marvel emoji.) "I like doing fun, whimsical stuff," Torrence told The Verge last year, "and so it's cool when I get the chance to meld that with my favorite movies or TV shows or whatever."

You can check out the rest of the series on his site.
