This charming Charlie

'Peanuts' meets the Smiths

August 20, 2013

The idea is incredibly simple, but it’s so brilliant, it makes you wonder why nobody ever thought of it before.

Lauren LoPrete, a Bay Area graphic designer, music fan, and indie-label entrepreneur (she runs Loglady with her boyfriend), describes it thusly:

“All images adapted from Charles Schulz’s Peanuts comic series. All words adapted from Smiths lyrics written by Morrissey.”

I for one am hooked. And now I can’t stop thinking about what other strips could be paired with the utterances of which musicians. The mind reels.
