I spent this past weekend in Disneyland and was really surprised by some of the great art that was showcased in 2 of the stores in Downtown Disney. Before you tell me I'm crazy, these are not your typical or traditional style Disney paintings. Nothing could make me happier than someone taking a dark or vintage interpretation of my favorite Disney movies. Here are some of my favorites.
Snow White by Jenny Chung
I was, and still am, a huge Snow White fan. I think it's because I've spent most of my life trying to achieve her perfect bob :) I digress. This painting immediately stood out to me when we walked into Vault 28. The colors are so vibrant and I love the subtle anime style the artist used. I am actively campaigning to the bf that we need this in our apartment.
Alice in Wonderland by Greg McCullough
This is such an interesting scene in the movie and this artist did a great job at capturing it without making it look too much like a literal translation. The rich and vibrant colors add to the fantastic expression on Alice's face.
I cannot describe how bad I want this so we can hang it above our bar. It's adorable. It's got a slightly vintage look to it. Perfection. And Remy's expression looks so fun and inviting. Who wouldn't want a glass of wine?!
Maleficent by Steven Daily
Easily my favorite villain of all. (The Evil Queen is a close #2) Her look and her attitude makes it impossible to not appreciate how fantastic she really is. Truly amazing. And the slightly Victorian feel of this painting is incredible.
Hopefully you will take a look into your childhood for some unexpected inspiration!
