Muppets + Firefly by James Hance

James Hance is a master of combining the realistic and the adorable.  You probably know his work from his book that combines Winnie the Pooh and Star Wars, Wookiee the Chew, or one of his many paintings.  He uses the tagline "relentlessly cheerful art," and it couldn't be more true.  His art will make you smile.

His newest project has me grinning from ear to ear.  Hance watched Firefly and was inspired to combine the characters he saw with The Muppets.  I wasn't sure how it would work out until I saw the first doodles - it's perfect.  It's cute and silly, and he's managing to capture the essence of each character. 

Here are a couple of my favorites:

He almost has the cast photo complete - the level of adorable is almost painful!
