Styles and characters


Finnish cartoonist Jaakko Seppälä created this overview of ten iconic comic characters as drawn in each of their typical styles.

Left to right, we see Albert Uderzo (Astérix), Bill Watterson (Calvin), Carl Barks (or another Donald Duck artist), Hergé (Haddock), Jim Aparo (I’m guessing here – it might also be a different Bronze Age Batman artist), Pertti Jarla (Heimo Vesa), Hugo Pratt (Corto Maltese), Tove Jansson (Moomin), Jim Davis (Garfield), Charles Schulz (Lucy).

I am particularly impressed with the little details that simply “get” the essence of the very varied and specific drawing styles, and particularly with the way Seppälä emulates the way Uderzo and Pratt draw. Also, props for the Woodstock Duck and for using Pratt’s Rasputin character when creating Haddock à la Pratt.
