Ever since the film's release (and fair while before then), the internet's been awash with Star Wars: The Force Awakens mash-ups and memes. Some have been hilarious, some a little try-hard. We may now have found which are certainly the most endearing. 

Brian Kesinger is an illustrator, animator, and author who has worked for the Walt Disney Studios for over 16 years; having contributed to the likes of Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, and Tarzan. He's also provided the art for Marvel's recent Groot series of comic books. 

Active on Instagram, he uses the space to post his own takes and mash-ups of Disney property; as well as work relating to his popular characters Victoria and Otto, an unlikely pairing between young lady and octopus companion. A clear fan of Star Wars, a good portion of his recent work on the site has related to the franchise; including a recent series in which he's rendered images of its characters in the style of beloved comic strip Calvin and Hobbes.

They're only a small part of the host of Star Wars mash-ups Kesinger's been posting recently. Here are Finn and BB-8 in the style of Cartoon Network's Adventure Time.

Kesinger even gave his own spin on the popular Twitter account, Emo Kylo Ren.
