Photoshopped Portraits Paint a Creepy and Cuddly Picture of Infamous World Leaders


What happens when you use a generous dose of juxtaposition in combination with some digital retouching skills? You end up with a rather humorous series of images that show the softer side of some of the most infamous men to ever walk this Earth.

Take a look at the remaining images below, including the rather impressive comparison between the stand-ins and their less friendly counterparts:
