As a kid or even when we grow up, we have that fondness to cartoon characters which sometimes could even influence us in different ways. We are sure that each of us has his or her favorite cartoon character from Disney princesses to cartoon series that we always watch on TV. As our fondness of these imaginary creations grow, we may start getting posters, tees and other novelty items where our fave characters are printed. But there is one person that went way beyond merely collecting and watching these cartoons and animated series. He used it as inspiration and subject for his art.
There are indeed a million different ways to express one’s ideas but for Isaiah Stephens, he do that by creating beautiful illustrations. We were first drawn to his series of Disney characters wearing costumes as part of Halloween in 2013 but now, he has worked on a new series wherein he created grown-up versions of various cartoons from Rug Rats to Dexter’s Laboratory. His illustrations are skillfully done reflecting a huge dose of talent from colors, strokes and the complete presentation of his works. Here are some of his works which will surely impress you:
