Cartoon characters from popular TV shows usually remind us of some warm memories from childhood. Remember when you used to sit on the sofa on weekend mornings and watch cartoons on mute before your mom caught you not sleeping? Well, I should admit that I did that every weekend. Ontario-based artist Miguel Vasquez seeks to distort our feelings about these cartoon characters with some reality twists. He creates realistic renditions of famous cartoon characters that might even disturb you.
Miguel Vasquez takes famous cartoon characters and turns them into creepy and disturbing versions of people that we wouldn’t normally see on TV. At least not as cartoon characters for children. He makes them look sinister, twisted, and scary. Not something you would wish for your children to see on Sunday morning.
The artist loves to bring his renditions as close to reality as possible, giving them many human-like flaws and imperfections. Wrinkles, uneven skin tones, belly fat—it’s just a few features that make them look like real human beings. Although there’s something about them that makes them look unsettling. The kind of people that you wouldn’t want to meet on the street.
From such cartoon characters as Marge and Bart Simpson from all-time favorite TV show The Simpsons to Patrick Star and Squidward from Spongebob Squarepants, to Rick and Morty from the show of the same name, and even video game characters like Toad from Super Mario, this artist will soon have recreated every famous character out there!
