Initially, Italian art director Manolo Saviantoni started his fun series of pixelated characters as part of a guessing game that he often played with his daughters.

“The funniest thing was… asking my daughters to guess who those characters are,” said Saviantoni.

Saviantoni decided to share the fun with a bigger audience by posting his creative artworks as @the_oluk on Instagram.

So far, he has featured popular cartoons and movie characters from The Smurfs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even the adorable minions from Despicable Me.
