The Artist Turned Tom Hanks’ Iconic Characters Into Cartoons

We all have idols and favorite actors or singers, but unfortunately, not a lot of us have the talent to express that love through art. Anja Shu is an experienced illustrator and also a big fan of actor Tom Hanks, and she used her talents to create funny illustrations of her favorite movie characters played by Hanks.

“Tom Hanks is one of my all-time favorite actors. His performance is truly remarkable in so many movies! So I decided to put together all of my favorite characters played by this Oscar-winning actor and draw them in my style,” the artist told Bored Panda.

Shu drew the characters that her favorite actor played in movies such as Forrest Gump, The Terminal, The Green Mile, Cast Away, Splash, Big, and Catch Me If You Can. The artist has a pretty unique style of drawing and her illustrations can be recognized for their beautiful watercolor look.
