Getting old fast.

When you're young, it's easy to feel invincible. So invincible, in fact, that the thought of growing old can seem like a sheer impossibility. Of course, the reality is quite different. Growing old is inevitable, and eventually, the sweet embrace of old age comes for us all. But although it seems like lightyears away, sometimes it pays to prepare for it—or at the very least, think about what your life might look like.

That's why we asked designer Lucy Fry of Play on Play Studio to sketch random passers-by’s caricatures. Albeit, with a twist—to turn their youthful faces into wrinkled, withered, versions of their older selves.
