If you're a fan of Studio Ghibli, but also someone who grew up in Ireland, you'll love these illustrations.
Last month, Irish artist Amy Louise (@Amylouioc) was "talked into" drawing Mr. Tayto as a Studio Ghibli character and it went down extremely well on Twitter.
The 22-year-old Cork woman was so encouraged by the response that she decided to illustrate more icons of Irish culture - from Zig & Zag to Bosco to The Morbegs - in the same style.
To say that they're brilliant is an understatement. To say that we want a feature-length movie where they all intersect in one bonkers universe (possibly ruled by Michael D. Higgins and his doggos) is also an understatement. Bosco could easily slot into 'Spirited Away', to be fair.
