We recently showed you what Pokémon characters would look like in a strange alternate universe. And now a clever Chinese artist named XiaozuoZ has incorporated a similar concept in a series of images that imagine what it would look like if SpongeBob characters were humans.

The colorful, inventive series shows six characters from the hit cartoon TV show and will surprise you in every image. The artist brilliantly mixes bold colors and carefully crafted features to bring these characters to life.

I especially like how each picture incorporates some of the SpongeBob characters' signature items. And the colors of each piece really honor how the cartoon versions of the characters look on the show. Let us know which one is your favorite!
