This Artist Showed How 20 Famous Historical Figures Would Look Like If They Were Alive Today

Published 4 weeks ago

If you’re an avid history buff, you’d probably love to travel back in time and meet some of your favorite historical figures. And while that’s not really possible (at least until someone invents a time machine), artist and comic book writer Magdalena Vissagio has the next best thing.

The artist does realistic recreations of historical figures to show how they would look like if they lived in the 21st century, and it’s pretty fascinating. Check out some of her works in the gallery below, and if you want more, make sure to read our ealier articles about the works of Bas Uterwijk and Becca Saladin here and here!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
