Illustrator and designer Michael Myers designed a series of images that depict the evolutionary stages of Pokemon characters using the idea of nesting dolls. While nesting dolls are traditionally doll-shaped capsules that contain smaller versions of the doll inside, these images are 2D works of art.
Each of the Pokemon characters begins as a small creature that grows and evolves as it ages. In order to show the distinct stages, this artist has drawn a cross section-like diagram of each character.
The image is designed in a horizontal pattern. The outermost image is a Pokemon ball followed by what the creature would look like when it is fully grown. A sequential order is followed until the final and most central image shows the infant Pokemon.
