Lucas Levitan is a Brazilian artist known for his ability to turn casual pictures into hilarious works of art. In his ongoing series called “Photo Invasion” (previously here) Lucas uses other people’s Instagram photos as canvases for his own creations. He takes a picture and illustrates it with silly, funny, or weird characters, completely changing the context of the original, usually making it more fun.

But do not think of Lucas as a thief – he actually credits every picture that he invades, and even invites people to have their own photos invaded by using the hashtag #iwanttobeinvaded.

Scroll down to see Levitan’s limitless imagination for yourself!

Probably some poor bride waiting somewhere for the groom to turn up after an epic stag night.

I still love cracking open an actual book to read, but for travel, my Kindle is better. :)

A heat wave causes a very rare day and for an opportunist a soup do sure.

Okay, the only thing to do is call for a google way out , like instant bridge, or large birds to pick up everyone or a ship that will save all of you or listen and look hard at that GPS, does this mean the water will open up to dry land to let everyone cross except the bad guys?
