Dino Tomic is a talented Croatian artist who has become famous for his fascinating tattoos and pencil drawings. Tomic began regularly publishing his work online in 2014 which has since earned him over 250K followers on Facebook and 787K on Instagram. These numbers are insane, but once you check out his art, you instantly understand the man is worth every single one of his fans.
Currently, the pandemic has Tomic trapped inside his home just like so many of us. So, to keep himself busy and his mind sharp, the artist decided to start a fun little side project — drawing celebrities and characters in different cartoon styles. Tomic has already completed 17 subjects, which means he’s designed 153 characters, and the results are absolutely spot-on. Continue scrolling and see for yourself!
“Since I’m stuck inside due to the coronavirus, I wanted to try out something new,” Tomic said. And even though these portraits may not have challenged his skills as much as the impressive projects he’s known for, they sure were an exciting distraction from what has been going on in the world the past couple of months.
“When I want to expand the series and reimagine someone new, I usually simply listen to my fans and pick one of the famous people they’ve suggested.”

Tomic has been drawing since kindergarten but he began taking it seriously at about 16 to 18 years old. From that point on, he has almost never had a day when he didn’t draw something. He’s completely self-taught and is constantly stepping outside his comfort zone to continue learning. If you want to see what the artist is truly capable of, head on to his social media accounts and check out his large scale family portraits. That series has taken him 3 years to finish and it’s the one he’s most proud of.
