If They Could Transform

If there’s one thing that is bound to send you on a trip down memory lane it is childhood TV programmes.  In an era where TV was an after homework treat the thought of all those theme songs and characters is about as heavy a dose of nostalgia as you can get.

Alongside the characters that you wanted to be a part of (for me it was being a Ghostbuster) were their iconic vehicles which often played a major part in forming the show’s content.

Cars are cool.  And they are even cooler when you are a little kid.  Combining this with another childhood favourite in Transformers is illustrator Darren Rawlings who has given many of these recognisable vehicles a robotic twist with his “if they could transform” series of images.

What if Optimus Prime hadn’t chosen a Kenworth K100 Cab Truck and had instead opted for the DeLorean from Back to the Future?  Well step inside the cartoon mind of Darren Rawlings to find out (complete with hoverboard!).

DeLorean Back to the Future – DeLorean
