'Famous Chunkies' Depicts Cartoon Characters with Added Weight

Pop culture icons, especially fictional ones, always seem to be in perfect shape, so Alex Solis created a series called 'Famous Chunkies' that depicts otherwise.
The Chicago-based artist illustrated iconic cartoons as if they gained at least 100 pounds.

Some of the fattened-up icons include Spider-Man, Darth Vader and Captain America. However, those specific icons are quite active in the cartoon realm, so it's hard to see them in a heavier form. Cartoon characters like Ronald McDonald and the Cookie Monster should probably look this way in real life. Unless they were to have miraculous metabolisms, the two characters would never look the way they do on TV after all these years of only eating fries and cookies.
