Pop culture can be comical – and this artist takes that description literally.

Legendary cartoonist R.Crumb transformed photos of celebrities like Coco Austin, Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Paris Hilton into something out of a comic strip in drawings from his Art & Beauty magazines.

The result? Seeing some of your favorite females take on new life as carefully-drawn cartoons – and looking seriously badass.

In honor of the completion of the third volume in the series, David Zwirner Gallery in London is displaying the largest collection of Crumb's work to date, as well as publishing all three of the Art & Beauty magazines.



In the illustrations, Lady Gaga is on stage, crowd surfing atop of thousands of adoring fans.
