Los Angeles artist and illustrator Jeff Victor has been cultivating his creativity for a long time. After studying art an design at the University of Kansas he went on to work with some of the most famous animations and art studios of all time from Cartoon Network to Dreamworks and ABC Mouse and National Geographic, he has worked alongside, for, and with just about everyone in the animation and illustration industr
y. In a series of artwork by Victor, he illustrates the evolutionary progress of iconic characters and/or iconic actors. Sometimes, not every single possibility is presented, but truly the roles that defined them are included and this simple gesture displays an array of talent and passion that is unparalleled in today's society.
Currently, I'm working as a children's book illustrator, but when I'm not drawing for work, I'm drawing for fun. I am a huge movie fanatic and expresses my love for my favorite movies though my art, by drawing "adorkable" renditions of famous characters.
In an interview, Jeff said:
My tribute to the illustrious career of Robin Williams. Obviously, there are many, many more movies that could be included in this piece, but I tried to represent as many highlights as I could. This particular Evolution was quite emotional to draw. Williams’ work was so meaningful to me, and a big part of my childhood. His death is a loss for us all. I’m not very eloquent at eulogizing, so hopefully my art will speak for itself and remind you of the joy you felt watching his films.
I am selling this piece as a print here, and for every copy I sell, I am donating $5.00 to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, a charity Williams was very passionate about.
The facial expressions and talent Jim Carrey posses and utilizes were depicted very well by Jeff.
One of the music industry's most iconic artists of all time and Jeff totally nailed him!
Let's hope there's still a lot more of Wonder Woman in our futures.
The man of a million faces.
Thor has definitely gotten cooler as the years go by.
The coolest part about Harrison Ford's evolutionary art is that unlike many, many other actors, he managed to dominate two major characters who spanned multiple movies. He is definitely one of a kind and it's really cool to see it in one image.
He just got cooler over the years, didn't he?
