Products designed for children often portray a happy-go-lucky world filled with sunlight, flowers, smiling animals and friendship. But what happens to this world when jaded, miserable adults with a morbidly dark sense of humor get their hands on it? Well, you get something that looks a lot like Coloring Book Corruptions.

This twisted blog maintains a collection of illustrations from children’s coloring books that have been twisted and corrupted by darkly humorous adults. Two octopuses frolicking and playing under the sea become a pair of predators dragging a diver to his doom, and a playful Martian becomes a murderous heart-eating monstrosity. Most of the art seems to have been done with crayons and colored pencils, just like it should be in a real coloring book. There’s definitely something funny yet unsettling about seeing cute childhood characters in situations like these.

Make sure to pay the blog’s Facebook page a visit – it features guest posts by enthusiasts also looking to destroy the innocence of their children’s coloring books. If you’ve got a dark sense of humor and a knack for coloring with crayons or pencils, give it a try! The blog’s website recently crashed due to the massive surge of visitors it has received since it went viral, but it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on!
