“Other than the obvious — that Keanu is hot — I’ve been a fan for a long time,” says the artist. “I’m an ’80s kid, so I grew up knowing him best as Ted from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure — and I’ll never NOT hear his voice that way.”

“I like that Keanu has had an interesting career, going from playing kind of ditzy surfer dude types to action heroes, romantic leads, and hitmen more recently,” says Crystal. “The amazing thing is people love him in every one of these roles and that’s a rare thing in Hollywood.”

“I think Disney and Keanu blend so well because, currently, he’s having a big “the Internet’s boyfriend” moment. And who else the Internet loves? Disney princes (and princesses),” says the artist.

People on the internet had a lot to say about the illustrations

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?
