Robert DeJesus is back on Bored Panda with more of his amazing drawings. Robert is known for his series where he recreates photos of strangers as adorable and fun cartoons! He started doing this as an exercise but soon realized that he could do commissions and get paid. People love his recreations—apparently finding out what your cartoon version looks like is on many people's minds.

"These were originally an idea I had a few decades ago to turn people's photos, used with permission, of course, into scenes that could have existed in a panel of a fictitious manga. The likeness of the subject wasn't that all-important to me. They were made to simply stay in practice and keep my online galleries updated frequently," Robert told Bored Panda.

"My growing following just really enjoyed the idea of simply looking like a chibi or anime-style character since it was a completely unique twist on the caricature genre most have seen made at carnivals and fairs. I was flooded with offers to buy a self-portrait of their own selves as a chibi or anime character. So I just started offering profile images for sale since then and it has helped fund my other personal projects I've been also wanting to work on."

I’m sorry but I hate it when girls stick their tongue out like this... it bugs me. I have no real reason to hat it but I do. To each their own though
