Your favourite cartoon characters like you've never seen them before

Cartoon characters come in for all kinds of heavy treatment during their on-screen adventures. They get blown up, they fall off cliffs, and, yes they even get steam-rollered and still live to see another day. But have ever wondered what they would look like if they were stretched through some kind of alien time warp that deconstructed them into their constituent colours? No? Well, we're going to show you anyway because the results look stunning.

A Peruvian design studio has taken a range of our favourite childhood characters and stretched them out into strips, arches and ribbons in a form of deconstruction that creates some eye-catching results and highlights the characters' colours. They've applied to the treatment to Disney and Hanna Barbera classics like Mickey Mouse and The Flintstones to relatively recent stars like Finn from Aventure Time (if you're an illustrator yourself, see our guide to the best digital art software).
