Chilean artist Fabian Ciraolo has depicted the likes of Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth Taylor but he’s also pretty adept at drawing 80s pop-culture icons. Take a gander at his retro-styled versions of Jem, the ThunderCats, She-Ra and more! (There may be a surprise appearance from Captain Planet)

These really need no introduction…

Stratos wearing a Tiffani-Amber Thiessen shirt? Yes.

I may have to cosplay this Cheetarah.

Rockabilly Captain Planet? Why the hell not?!

Unfortunately, Ciraolo hasn’t tagged any of his art so you can’t go looking just for the 80s fun but I’m sure you’ll enjoy his other work as well. Just be aware, some is slightly NSFW.
