indian digital artist and illustrator prasad bhat has condensed the entire careers of some of the world’s most famous faces into brief animated gifs. ‘the evolution’ series sees ten celebrities — johnny depp, leonardo dicaprio, robert de niro, christian bale, jim carrey, tom hanks, matt damon, will ferrell, arnold schwarzenegger, and jack black — morph through their most popular roles. each of the images added to the animated sequences have first been carefully designed and realized in adobe illustrator. these individual vector graphics depict the unchanged face of the actor, overlaid with a variety of zany costumes and disguises used throughout their films. finally, the still compositions have been brought to life in a seamless sequence, compressing a cast of characters into a short, illustrated catalog of the artists’ greatest hits. see leonardo dicaprio transform from the wolf of wall street to the revenant, and robert de niro from a taxi driver to the godfather, below.
