Brynn Metheney's Shark Cats are horrifyingly adorable

Adorable little bundles of nope.

Being no strangers to the internet now, you should know that there's a tonne of weird-as-hell things out there and it seems that with the rise of DeviantArt and other art-showcasing websites, there's some pretty strange people out there making these weird-as-hell things. One of these examples is Shark Cats, the brain child of Brynn Metheney, a Cali-based illustrator and artist that dabbles into the realm of science and sci-fi-themed drawings. As you may have guessed, Shark Cats combine the anatomies of sharks and cats to create some pretty freakin' weird results. "It was a normal day when I grabbed my sketchpad and began to doodle." says Metheney on the project. "What came out were scribbles of a horrible little creature: the Shark Cat. The initial design was based on the thresher shark. I found that the short face and extremely large eyes worked well with the cat aesthetic. However, as I kept sketching, I noticed that almost any shark species could be adapted.". The illustrations were made into a calendar that has since sold out, however for our pleasure, all his creations are on his website HERE and can be printed into a poster HERE. Check out some of our favourites below, including the Blue Shark Cat, the Hammerhead Shark Cat and the Whale Shark Cat.
