Weekend pop art: Watch pop icons change over time

Nothing stays the dame for long in this fast-moving world of ours, and that truism applies to pop culture icons as much as anything or anyone else.

Recognising this salient fact, LA-based artist and cartoonist Jeff Victor who describes himself on his Kickstarter page as a “huge pop culture fan” has taken it upon himself to chart the evolution of a dizzying array of pop culture characters and actors.

Drawing (no pun intended: OK yes, totally) on his years of experience as “a character designer in animation and video games, and currently … as a children’s book illustrator”, Jeff charts the changes in about 1200 cartoon characters across the years in artwork that is both incredibly cute and insightful, neatly capturing how much a character can change and yet stay the same over time.

You can see more of his amazing artwork at his Instagram page and even buy it through his online store … and you should, you totally should because change is a good thing and Jeff’s charting of change, pop culture-wise at least, is a wonderful thing indeed.
