Chicago-based artist Shawn Bowers started a project that hasn’t been done before. It’s called Garfemon and the idea is simple – to mash the original 151 Pokemon with Garfield, the famous lasagna loving comic character.
The amazing thing is that Shawn manages to keep the identities of both Garfield and Pokemon while at the same time creating a totally original new character. He has already made 46 of 151 mashups, so many more Garfemons are coming soon.
In 2013 Garfield was crowned by the Guinness World Records as the world’s most widely syndicated comic strip (roughly 2,580 newspapers and journals featured it). However, this project is without a doubt something new in the Garfield universe!
