Fresh Take: Scooby through the Ages

The original Scooby Doo cartoon series aired from 1969-1971, and it very much embodied the era of its creation.  Since the original series, there have been movies, reboots, remakes, and specials, but the series' aesthetics have always remained trapped in the seventies.  In this series, Julia Wytrazek has re-imagined the main characters in the popular styles of every decade of the Twentieth Century.  I especially like the 1990s reference to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
"In this project I explored the fashions of the 20th century through the characters from the show Scooby Doo. I thought it was interesting how all the characters got slight tweaks and updates to their designs since 1969, and set out to imagine how they’d look in every decade of the 20th century. All the illustrations merge the original personalities of the characters with appropriate fashion trends, and stick with the familiar colour schemes."
