LONDON, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A London-based makeup artist is gaining an increasingly devoted following on social media for using the lower half of her face as a canvas to illustrate seemingly exact replicas of famous cartoon characters.

From Bugs Bunny to Eric Cartman to Robin Williams' Genie from Aladdin, Laura Jenkinson has seemingly left no stone unturned in the cartoon landscape.

Using her lips as a focal point, Jenkinson incorporates them as the subjects' own, and builds from that perspective, often covering her cheeks, chin and nose with makeup.

Jenkinson often uses her Instagram filtres, her teeth and the specific purse of her lips to manipulate the image into looking even more strikingly like the original. She's even turned her head upside down to render the football-headed title character of Hey Arnold! and Wallace from Wallace and Gromit.

On her Facebook page, Jenkinson promises to render Sponge Bob Square Pants next.
