Brazilian artist Julio Cesar created a playful series of digitally altered images that reveal cartoon personas of real people. Although the artist did not know the subjects in the images, each quirky cartoon portrait presents a striking resemblance.

The images have commonalities such as over-sized eyes. Each image presents a cheerful individual -- most of whom are children. The images all have a unique characteristic, which reveals Julio Cesar's artistic ability. For example, there is an image of a blonde toddler who is getting her hair styled at a salon. The significance of the image is that the girl is winking due to slight discomfort. In addition, she is wearing an uncommon red bandanna and her hairdresser is adorned with eye-catching tattoos.

Each image presents the viewer with many questions about the subjects. The vague context collides with the undeniably interesting subjects to create a mesmerizing photography series.
