32 Illustrations of Real Celebrities Reimagined As Cartoons


We’ve come a long way since those boardwalk caricaturists first asked us what we wanted to be when we grow up and proceeded to draw an exaggerated, giant-headed version of us riding a horse or climbing Mt. Everest. While it’s a neat trick, the similarity between us and that colorful illustration is probably coincidental at best and we have since become boring adults who never have and never will climb a mountain.

But not all caricatures are farfetched. Lera Kiryakova, an illustrator from Russia, spends her time drawing uncanny reproductions of all of the famous people we know and love. Not only are the drawings beautiful, they’re frighteningly accurate.

Just like any caricaturist, Kiryakova exaggerates prominent features and the final results are just spectacular. Among her creations you can find everyone from Leo DiCaprio to Taylor Swift to Frida Khalo. We’ve collected 32 of our favorites but if you want more, we invite you to check out the artist’s Instagram. To see her work in action, you can head to her YouTube channel (links at the end of the post).
