Some cartoons have such iconic styles, a distinct ‘feel’ about them, that they are instantly recognizable. Cartoonist Kevin McShane decided to pay tribute to some of most-loved and famous cartoons by mimicking their style to draw himself in 100 self-portraits.

We are not sure what the kids are up to these days, but cartoons used to be almost like a religion. Since they were only aired on TV, you sometimes had to skip class to watch them or wake up early on Saturdays and Sundays to catch all of the favorite ones. Guessing from this artist's awesome recreations of cartoon styles, he was probably one of these kids.

The accuracy of Kevin’s drawings is incredible, capturing the very soul of each cartoon in just one simple self-portrait. The research process must’ve been fun! “Kevin, it’s 2 am. Why are you on the couch eating Cheetos and watching re-runs of Snorks?”

“Research!”

Scroll down to check out Kevin’s cool self-portraits in 100 cartoon art styles for yourself, you might find your favorite, too!

Looks like the style every 12 year old DBZ fan draws, just slightly not good

I think he needs to work on his anime style more. It's close but it's still missing that "something" that would make it feel like it. What do you think?
