Top 10 teen crushes in beautiful illustrations

We want to give Sydney-based illustrator, Amy Blue, a giant high-five across the planet for creating this beautiful series of portraits dedicated to her first crushes.

The collection features icons from popular TV and Film in the 90s, from Leonardo DiCaprio to Wednesday Addams.

"We grew up with these characters who were our age, who had amazing adventures, who overcame obstacles," said Amy Blue, "And who prepared us with the necessary skills and life lessons one must obtain to be an adult."

So whether it was My Girl's death-obsessed Vada or the morphing Alex Mack, here is an excellent reminder of the on-screen idols we grew up with.

Amy Blue's work is available to buy on Etsy.
