Black and white portraits may have been fine decades ago, but they’re pretty bland by today’s standards, which is why Mason London decided to dress up iconic photographs with vibrantly colored cartoon clothing. The results are hilarious depictions of people like Albert Einstein rocking some threads you’d see on a hip hop MC or Elizabeth Taylor eating an ice cream sandwich, looking as though she’s ready to attend a block party. A personal favorite is Winston Churchill dressed like a pimp while also wearing boy shorts and a baseball cap.
Not much information is available on Mason London, though he is based in London. He has a personal Tumblr page in which he uploads his artistic endeavors. Music and cinema seem to be a major influences on the budding graphic designer.
