90s Cartoons as School Portraits

Fifty cartoons reimagined as realistic portraits with the help of neural-networks.

Using Artbreeder and Photoshop I’ve created fifty fake school photos. The portraits and clothing are inspired by obscure, split-second references as well as flashbacks / flashforward / dream sequences in 90s cartoons.

All characters are aged as if they were late High School/ University.

Shows from left to right:

  • Magic School Bus (Miss Frizzle, Arnold Pearlstein and Keesha Franklin)
  • Futurama (Professor Farnsworth, Philip Fry, and Turanga Leela)
  • Recess (Theodore “TJ” Detwiler, Ashley Spinelli & Vincent Pierre LaSalle)
  • Simpsons (Homer Simpson, Marge Bouvier & Ned Flanders)
  • Pepper Ann
  • Thomas the Tank Engine
  • Arthur (Arthur Read)
  • Spongebob Squarepants
  • Sailor Moon (U̶s̶a̶g̶i̶ ̶T̶s̶u̶k̶i̶n̶o̶ Minako Aino)
  • Garfield (Garfield [Davis])
  • Doug (Doug Funnie)
  • Bobby’s World (Bobby Generic)
  • Inspector Gadget (John Brown)
  • Rugrats (Tommy Pickles & Chuckie Finster)
  • Dexter’s Lab (Dexter McPherson & Susan “Mandark” Astronomanov)
  • Pokemon (Ash Ketchum & Misty Waterflower)
  • Reboot (Bob & Dot Matrix)
  • Family Guy (Peter Griffin & Lois Pewterschmidt)
