Mr. Bean Inserted Into Historical Portraits By Caricature Artist


Rowan Atkinson, the actor behind the famously hilarious Mr. Bean and Blackadder characters, has made another foray into the pages of history thanks to caricature artist Rodney Pike. He took some of history’s most famous portraits and jazzed them up by replacing the original subjects’ faces with those of Atkinson’s unforgettable characters.

Artistic purists may not appreciate Pike’s comical work because it’s hard to take the works of Rembrandt van Rijn or Holbein the Younger when the subject’s face has been replaced with a hilariously expressive scowl from Mr. Bean. Obviously, Pike’s work is entirely digital – the original works remain untouched!
