Instagram is flooded with selfies, gym videos and food porn but now and then I come across an account that is doing its own thing.

I love finding those accounts that add a sprinkle of positivity and a dash of creativity to your day.

Amy Louise Art is exactly that.

During the week she posted a picture on Twitter of Mr Tayto in a new light.

She drew him using the Studio Ghibli style, a popular anime art studio. Studio Ghibli's films are some of the highest-grossing anime films made in Japan and the USA.

It's a very popular and recognisable style but seeing the interpretation using famous Irish characters is amazing.

Her tweet of Mr Tayto got an incredible response and as a result, she has recreated some other well-known faces such as Zig and Zag, Micheal D with his dogs Brod and Shadow, Bosco and of course, The Morbegs.

We adore them and we cannot wait to see what else this talented girl creates!
