Cartoonist Kevin McShane is the man behind Cartoon Kevin, a project in which the comic and animator drew himself in the style of 100 different types of animations. McShane's project took two years to create and spans 100 years of animation. Almost every notable style of cartoon drawings and some niche styles from other animators you may not know are represented in the project.

People will be able to recognize the references to such iconic illustrations as The Flintstones, The Simpsons and South Park, but what's really fun is deciphering who the less recognizable styles of characters are. Hardcore fans of cartoons, comics and animated films could easily spend hours trying to figure out the inspiration for each of the Cartoon Kevins.
