14 Pics: If Famous Sodas Were Cartoon Characters

CocaCola, Sprite, Fanta, we know our favorite sodas by their taste but what would they be like if they were a little more… human? Maybe we’d like to go grab a drink with them? Maybe they’d be so obnoxious, we couldn’t resist slapping them? Luckily, we don’t have to guess anymore. Korea-born Canadian artist who goes by nickname Sillvi has masterfully transformed some of the most popular sodas into characters, and they’re so distinct, they could very easily have their own shows.

“Artistically, I’ve been experimenting with various different themes that encourage engagement on social media,” Sillvi told Bored Panda. “I came to the conclusion that people react better to things that they are already familiar with, for example, pre-existing characters, logos, and so on. So, I’ve decided to put my own twist on famous soft drink brands to make them even more unique.”

“Each of the artworks took me about two hours to complete and since I have 14 of them, I’ve spent about 28 hours on this project.”

And the artist put a lot of careful consideration into each of the illustrations. “While developing my characters, I mostly focused on two elements: the aesthetics of the logo itself and the taste of the soda. I also drank a few of them before drawing their characters.”

When it comes to the actual images, Sillvi has a few favorites, but for him, there’s one that he’s most happy with. “I like Barq’s Root Beer the most. I would definitely want to be friends with that guy.” For those of you who don’t know, Barq’s is an American soft drink. It was created by Edward Barq and bottled since the turn of the 20th century. Owned by the Barq family but bottled by the Coca-Cola Company, it was known as Barq’s Famous Olde Tyme Root Beer until 2012.
