As Breast Cancer Awareness Month draws to an end, contemporary artist aleXsandro Palombo takes a candid look at what iconic cartoon characters would look like as breast cancer survivors. This is not the first time illustrator and activist aleXsandro Palombo has portrayed Disney princesses with adversities. You may remember his renderings of Pocahontas, Belle and Mulan as wheelchair-bound amputees.
This time, the satirical artist adds other female cartoon leads, including Wonder Woman, Lois Griffin and Jessica Rabbit, to explore the less visible side of breast cancer.

«What kind of man are you?», c'est le nom de l'exposition de l'artiste italien aleXsandro Palombo se tenant jusqu'au 24 octobre à l'espace des diversités et de la laïcité. Alexsandro Palombo est connu pour ses détournements de stars de la bande dessinée ou de dessins animés. La plus célèbre d'entre elle étant Marge Simpson (de la série télévisée homonyme) représentée de manière plus ou moins provocante dans des tenues de stars : Marilyn Monreo par exemple. Dans le cadre de la semaine de prévention contre les violences conjugales qui aura lieu en novembre, l'artiste détourne à nouveau des figures connues telles que Blanche Neige ou Wonder Woman et leur fait endosser l'apparence de femmes battues par leur compagnon. Montrer les sévices faits aux femmes et leur proposer de l'aide, ainsi qu'à leur compagnon ou maris afin de les faire cesser est l'objectif que vise ce lieu engagé contre les discriminations.

Italian artist Alexsandro Palombo has immortalised the wedding of Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney in the style of the US cartoon series The Simpsons.
Amal isn't the only high-profile Brit to be immortalised in Simpson form - both the Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen have appeared as cartoons. Queen Letizia of Spain has also made the Simpsons cast.

- Amal Alamuddin as you've NEVER seen her before: Mrs Clooney immortalised as a Simpson to celebrate impeccable wedding wardrobe
- Lebanese-born lawyer, 36, wowed with designer outfits last weekend
- AleXsandro Palombo has captured them in a series of illustrations
- Tied knot in custom-made Oscar de la Renta
- Also wore Alexander McQueen, Giambattista Valli and Stella McCartney
- Italian artist has also given Duchess of Cambridge Simpson makeover
It was one of the most star-studded weddings of the year and since tying the knot to George Clooney in a three-day wedding extravaganza, Amal Alamuddin has secured her status as one of the world's favourite style icons.
And now, one artist has celebrated Mrs Clooney's wardrobe in a rather bizarre way - by immortalising her as a Simpson.
The Lebanese-born lawyer, who has shot from relative obscurity to most envied woman in the world overnight, wowed with a wedding wardrobe packed with the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Dolce and Gabbana and Prada, which Italian Alexsandro Palombo has captured in a series of illustrations.
The contemporary artist, illustrator and activist has 'Simpsonized' the 36-year-old in a succession of her best-known outfits from the wedding weekend.
The series includes her stunning selection of designer looks from Alexander McQueen, Giambattista Valli and Stella McCartney.
And, of course, she can be seen in her bespoke Oscar de la Renta for her marriage to Mr Clooney.
The French lace gown was embroidered with diamante and pearls and featured a circular train, while the wide neckline scooped just off her shoulders.
He has also included the look she wore the day after her wedding - £450 Stella McCartney tailored, wide-leg trousers and a navy and cream top, both of which were bespoke, of course.
The day before she wore the weekend's most colourful creation - a Giambattista Valli Haute Couture minidress, which she wore for her first appearance as Mrs Clooney on Sunday, as seen in the quirky illustrations.
At the glamorous pre-wedding dinner, she took a tip from British royalty and wore a custom-made dress by Alexander McQueen, the same designer that the Duchess of Cambridge wore for her actual wedding.
The eye-catching scarlet gown, which perfectly complemented Amal's dark hair and eyes, was adapted from a Resort 2011 collection design, which Michelle Obama wore to a state dinner in 2011.
Alexsandro's previous work includes giving the Duchess of Cambridge a similar makeover and also recreating Disney princesses as disabled and as victims of domestic abuse on his blog Humor Chic.
Speaking about Amal's wardrobe, fashion writer Simon Glazin said: 'Amal is surely now the First Lady of Hollywood? She has got the high-profile hubby, has her own amazing career, will now of course be enlisted to help with charities and has the most incredible designer wardrobe.
'She has given us a glimpse of what to expect from her when dressing for occasions in the space of a few days: her monochrome Dolce & Gabbana arrival outfit demonstrates her ultra chic travelling wardrobe, the stand-out red McQueen dress was sexy eveningwear done to perfection, the post-wedding Giambattista Valli couture mini-dress shows how she does short and sassy, and the trouser-and-top combo for their civil ceremony was her answer to chic, well-tailored, classic dressing.
'Women will want her wardrobe, and they will try to emulate her looks. She's aspirational and has proven to be a style icon in the making, always wearing the clothes rather than them wearing her. She wears couture exactly as it's meant to be worn - fitted down to the last millimetre and with confidence.'
