Who doesn’t love Waldo (or Wally if you’re from the UK)? He’s traveled time and space through utter chaos and seems genuinely unfazed. He wears the same look of bemused wonder no matter where he shows up.

That’s why I think it’s incredible that when he shows up in paintings, he’s still as relaxed as ever.


The Tumblr called “Vintage Waldo” photoshops the classic characters from Where’s Waldo into famous pieces of art. It’s fun. You’ll like it.

The site even places the lore of the paintings into the Waldo canon:

“Once upon a time, in a desperate attempt at self-promotion, Waldo forced Wizard Whitebeard to send him back in time to meet and inspire his favorite painters. Art curators, skilled only in the art of stopping time travelers from placing themselves in famous paintings, removed Waldo from these pieces. Now, for the first time ever, we present to you the original artwork of countless men and women who were inspired by the greatest adventurer of all time.”

Happy hunting!
