These Illustrations Make The Twisted World Of Stephen King Surprisingly Adorable

Martin Bruckner is the delightfully whimsical illustrator (and dad) known online as Spaghetti Toes.

Martin first garnered attention thanks to his illustrations of the hilariously weird things his daughter Harper and other kids said:

A collection of these were released as a book, I Love You With All My Butt!

Since then, Martin began a tribute series where he draws the beloved celebrities we’ve lost.

Martin’s latest project might be a little surprising considering his fun and uplifting style — it’s a tribute to the twisted mind of Stephen King!

Martin tells BuzzFeed he started to read King’s books in junior high school, and has loved all things Stephen King ever since.

“When the remake of It came out I just had to draw a cute, little Pennywise,” Martin says.

“After that I just couldn’t stop doing Stephen King characters because there are so many incredible and unique monsters and villains that’ve come from the mind of King.”

This is, of course, the possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury from Christine.

“There are many lovable protagonists, too.”

Here's Gordie, Chris, Vern, and Teddy from Stand By Me (or The Body in novella form).

In the end, Martin says he hopes Stephen King fans enjoy his work. “My art style has always been geared towards childlike and children’s book-ish illustrations, so it’s been super fun to make horrible horror movie monsters look like cute and cuddly little cartoons.”
