Isaiah Stephens is an extremely talented DeviantArtist who has transformed kids from 90s TV shows into grown-up cartoon versions in his ‘All Grown Up’ series. This includes aging characters from shows like Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys, Recess and Hey Arnold.

It’s almost like the characters have stepped into a time machine, since their outfits, for the most part, stay the same. Because the characters are drawn in a more realistic style than in the shows, this leaves room for more embellishments and creativity with outfits, hairstyles and facial features. In some cases, Stephens has imagined that some of the kids from the 90s cartoons will grow up to get tattoos, which is a fun way to read into their futures.
