In an ongoing project, illustrator Austin Light removes one letter from popular television shows and draws the results. He even comes up with a premise for the new shows and shares the results on his Instagram account.
The idea first began on reddit where users removed one letter from popular movie titles and came up with a new synopsis. Austin took the idea one step further, creating a series of illustrations for each of the titles and last year!
Now Austin is tackling television and the results are equally entertaining.
