This artist steals pictures on Instagram and adds his touch

Simply put, Lucas Levitan creates quirky and surprising images using strangers' photos. He doesn't ask for permission, which gives both, the owner and the London-based artist autonomy and respect for one another's role in the process. 

The Brazilian-born illustrator is also the person behind the Photo Invasion app that allows people to add adorable cartoon characters into their Instagram pics. Some people call him the 'Banksy of IG'. He likes to mess with people's feelings, ultimately making them smile.

Lucas is using Kickstarter to raise funding for his first book too, and with 14 days until his initiative closes, he officially surpassed his initial £5,500 goal thanks to 280 backers. Photo Invasion - The Book will feature a "selection of the 100 best invasions that will pop out of the web and onto paper." The images here are examples of what might be included in the hardbound.

Follow him on Instagram for more drawn goodness.
