“Me and My Other Me” is a series of illustrated portraits of celebrities. The roster of folks drawn up include tech giants like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs as well as music mega-stars like Mick Jagger and Michael Jackson.

What makes them creepy–aside from the highly detailed cartoonish art style, that is–is that they’re portraits of both younger and older versions of the subjects.

Just take a look at a few of these disturbing pieces of art below and you’ll see what I mean.

Artist Fulvio Obregon, who hails from Cali, Colombia, says that his project is a series of illustrations of celebrities as they occupy the same space in the present as in the past. It was inspired by a set of photographs he saw that showed older and younger versions of their subject. As an artist, he took that inspiration and created his own unique vision.

The resulting images are haunting as hell, especially those of celebrities that have passed away. Caught somewhere between a cartoon and a photo, the expressions on the faces will just draw you in.
