Delightful artist drew a portrait of him and his girlfriend in 10 different cartoon styles and they’re all perfect

There’s nothing like a thoughtful present from a loved one to elicit all the feels and this one takes the cake.

Illustrator Kells O’Hickey surprised his girlfriend Lindsay over the holidays with a present of 10 different sketches of themselves—but in the styles of different cartoons.

“On Christmas Eve, when we both got off work, we exchanged gifts,” O’Hickey told Mashable over email. 

“She ripped the tissue paper off, grabbed the drawings and ignored the other gifts in there for about 30 minutes as she carefully paged through the drawings. When Linds finished, her eyes looked pretty puffy, she jumped on me and  gave me a huge hug and kiss, looked me in the eyes and said, ‘I love you to the moon and back,'” he continued. “It was perfect, her reaction nearly made me cry.”

The styles are wide ranging and include inspiration drawn from Rick and Morty, Dragon Ball Z, Disney characters, South Park, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy and more. 

Here’s the couple in the style of Adventure Time characters…

…and as characters in the Bob’s Burgers world. 

O’Hickey also paid tribute to the iconic style from The Simpsons…

and Rick and Morty (no Szechuan sauce involved, thank goodness)…

…and here they are in the style of Dragon Ball Z, which he says is his personal favorite.

“I can’t speak for Lindsay’s favorite, but my absolute personal favorite is the DBZ style,” O’Hickey wrote. “I’m a bit biased though, the Dragonball franchise has always been near and dear to my heart and its artist, Akira Toriyama, has been a personal role model of mine since I was a small child.”
