Artist Creates Cartoon Characters Out of Strangers’ Photographs

Robert de Jesus is back from popular demand with more of his drawings.
As you know, he is an artist with a singular vision. People that are not his close acquaintance send him pictures of themselves. What he does with them is a pure artistic genius. He draws adorable cartoon characters out of them.
“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 all that important to me. They were made to simply stay in practice and keep my online galleries updated frequently,” Robert said.
He has 80k followers on Instagram, 274k on Facebook, and 60k subscribers on his YouTube channel. You can look for him on all those platforms.
