Popular Cartoon Characters Reimagined As Modern-Day Adults

Have you ever wondered what some of your favorite cartoon characters would look like as adults? Not to worry, because an artist named Isaiah K. Stephens has decided to launch a series in which they transform cartoon characters from old shows into modern-day adults.

Famous Cartoon Characters as adult

Many of us grew up watching classic cartoons like Doug, South Park, and Rugrats. Isaiah Stephens, an artist, imagined what some “grown-up” characters would look like, and the result speaks for itself.

Bored Panda, a popular website, contacted Isaiah with some questions! First, we asked the artist how he got started on the illustrations, and this is what he said: “I’ve been drawing since I was a small child. Drawing was always my way of escaping the negativity in my life and in the world. I always used it as a form of therapy.”

They also began to wonder if the artist was self-taught or had studied his craft.

“I’m primarily self-taught. I didn’t have any formal training aside from art classes in high school and college. I did, however, undertake animation school. The emphasis was on movement and acting rather than creating still images.”

Having said that, they were curious as to how the artist came up with the idea for the series.

“I’m at this strange point in my life where nostalgia means more to me than I ever thought it would. I’m officially in my 30s, and when I look back on my childhood, I can say it was the happiest time of my life, thanks in large part to the media I consumed as a child. All of the cartoons, TV shows, movies, and other media remain meaningful to me because of the people I was able to share them with.

My siblings, parents, and old friends. So, in a way, these pieces were a celebration of the characters I grew up with and the shows that helped me get through some difficult times in my life. These pieces were always meant to be fun and a love letter to the shows, movies, and TV shows that I adore.”

Drawing is a difficult skill, so they asked the artist how long it takes him to complete one piece.

“I can actually finish these pretty quickly, especially because they’re based on the already established character design, so I’d say each piece takes about 2 to 4 hours.”

Following on from our discussion of the childhood series earlier, they asked Isaiah which of the childhood series was his personal favorite.

“I love all of the pieces I’ve done for this collection, but if I had to pick ONE favourite, I’d say it’s the Rugrats. The Rugrats was always my favourite TV show growing up, and I still hold all of those characters near and dear to my heart, so the Rugrats are my favourite of the set for more than one reason.”

Finally, they couldn’t help but wonder if the artist had any plans for other series in the near future, and here’s what he said: “Oh, I have a plethora of project ideas. If I’m completely honest, there are far too many! All I need now is the motivation and time to finish them all, so stay tuned!”
