French illustrator Linda Bouderbala loves to incorporate pop culture icons into her works, and for her latest summer-themed art series, fan-favorite cartoon characters from different generations take center stage. Inspired by the artist’s own tan lines, Bouderbala’s new project imagines what Homer Simpson, Dora the Explorer, and other popular toons who wear the same outfit almost every day would look like on their first day at the beach.

Seemingly posing for a sultry beach photo, Cammy White from the Street Fighter video game series flaunts her sexy figure in a green two-piece bikini. During regular days, the assassin-turned- MI6 operative wears a sleeveless, turtleneck thong leotard, which explains the obvious tan lines on the character’s chest. And because Cammy usually wears calf-high combat boots and red gauntlets, her forearms and the portion of her legs below the knees are also lighter in color than the rest of her body.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
