Everyone who's ever cried their eyes out to "The Lion King" -- read: everyone -- has likely pondered which member of the animated world would be their doppleganger, their lover, and their best friend. We can say for certain that Portuguese artist Rui Pinho has spent plenty of time on the subject, creating an addictive and hilarious series of photo collages as a result.
For each of his works, Pinho pairs an iconic celebrity, from Jacques Cousteau to Amy Winehouse, with their cartoon counterpart. (Cousteau = Nemo, Amy = Belle.) He then mashes up the black-and-white humans with their colorful spirit selves, creating surprisingly fluid collaged creations. We have to say, the combination of Michael Jackson and Simba, although unexpected, is pure genius. See Pinho's trippy animated visions below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
