Remember the Cartoon Network commercials and specials that showed us the private lives of animated characters like Johnny Bravo, the Space Ghost or Speedy González? An illustrator created a very similar and funny series.
Ed Harrington of Virginia Commonwealth University is a graphic designer who for the past 20 years has dedicated himself to showing us the hidden side of our favorite film and television characters in a highly original, creative and comical way.
This illustrator did not actually intend to create a complete series on his account of Instagram: Nothing Happen Today, which will show these characters in different everyday situations; He just thought about movies and cartoons that he liked and are part of pop culture, to give them a twist with a touch of humor:
I just tried to draw things that I like and I find them fun. Usually, I just think about how life could be different or difficult for these characters. Or I like to think about parts of a character that we never see and what could have been hidden all this time.
What do Darth Vader, Leono or He-Man do in their spare time when they are not in front of the camera? That and more Ed shows us in these 30 funny illustrations of the protagonists of our favorite shows and movies:
