Artist/Cartoonist/Actor Kevin McShane also known as “Cartoon Kevin” has portrayed himself in 100 different variations inspired by famous cartoon characters and their respectable artist styles. This collection of caricatures took McShane, two years in the making. It was had for me to choose my favorites but I did like the Bill Plympton, John Kricfalusi, Ralph Bakshi and Terry Gilliam, ones only because I love them as artist so the homage to their art is pretty cool. You will have to visit Cartoon Kevin’s site to pick out your own.
Since the dawn of animation, few characters have proved more enduring than Cartoon Kevin. Based on real-world cartoonist and animator Kevin McShane (right), Cartoon Kevin has found his way into the work of almost every significant animator and animation studio from Windsor McCay to Walt Disney, from Osamu Tekuza to Pixar. With his signature black t-shirt, blue jeans, and Chuck Taylor sneakers, Cartoon Kevin has delighted audiences from movie to television screens worldwide for over 100 years.
