Lauren LoPrete: This Charming Charlie (detail)

Work / Miscellaneous

Miscellaneous: Lauren LoPrete combines Peanuts and The Smiths. It’s ace

Some combinations make sense instinctively, others need to be brought together to fully appreciate the brilliance of their mutuality. With that in mind we give you This Charming Charlie a blog curated by US-based graphic designer Lauren LoPrete whereby she adds Smiths lyrics onto panels from Charlie Schulz’ iconic Peanuts. There’s a lot of this kind of stuff that fires Twitter’s imagination on an almost daily basis, but these ideas have legs when they go above and beyond enjoyment of the random juxtapositions and actually become something more than that, which I think these do. Cheers Lauren!
