A Twitter user merges the imagery of Ghost in the Shell and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to create anthropomorphized, cyberpunk artwork.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghost in the Shell are two of pop culture’s most prominent and enduring franchises with large numbers of creative, passionate fans. One artistic Twitter user has merged the two in a new work of fan art.
The artwork, titled “Ghost in the Halfshell” by @bustermoody, features a detailed image of a cybernetic, anthropomorphized turtle that is suspended in the air by wires, invoking imagery from the iconic 1995 anime film. The tweet’s caption reads, “Who are you? Who slips into my anthropomorphic robot body and whispers to my ghost?” The art has received positive feedback from other Twitter users, with one commenter simply writing, “Awesome!”
The Ghost in the Shell franchise started with Masamune Shirow’s cyberpunk manga of the same name, which was first published in Kodansha’s Young Magazine Kaizokuban in 1989, and has produced a wealth of films, anime series and novelizations. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise began in 1983 with a comic book by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman and has also produced a plethora of new stories and merchandise.
The artist’s anthropomorphic robot turtle isn’t the only recent example of fan art that combines two popular fandoms. For example, Twitter user Malin Falch posted two images that thrust Link from The Legend of Zelda into the hollow world of Dark Souls.
Entries in both franchises can be streamed on Hulu.
