Certain celebrities have often done or said things that have led to them being compared to animals, either real or imagined; now artist Jessie Bowie has taken this pop culture humor and transformed it into eerie celebrity animal hybrid art.

Everyone from fictional characters to real-life celebrities are represented as semi-human animals in Bowman's work. Lil' Wayne is drawn with the body and ears of a gremlin, the fictional monster to which he's usually compared. As a take on Prince's song "When Doves Cry," the pop singer is depicted as a crying dove. Even the Bluth family from the TV show Arrested Development have been drawn by Bowie as chickens performing their iconic "chicken dance."

These drawings are clever satires of pop culture with a lighthearted take on celebrity reputations. Hopefully Bowie will continue to produce more of her unique celebrity animal hybrids.
