I love seeing fairy-tale characters in a different view, or with a bit of a twist, and illustrator Jeffrey Thomas has done a brilliant job in just this; taking well-known Disney princesses and heroines, and re-drawing them in a darker, wilder and more violent way – and it works! While this isn’t something you want to show to the kids for their bedtime story, barbaric-looking scenes and horror-elements of these appeal to me simply because the concept works so well. I especially love the fact that the women in every single one of these pictures looks very much in control, being villainous-looking hags to watch out for, rather than the lady-like heroine images we’re used to.
I loved this series of pictures by this illustrator so much that I pretty much posted most of the pictures he drew here, just so that you can get a good idea of the use of rich colour, wild-eyed look and very bitey looking teeth.

These really made me laugh.
I like the Snow White – here it makes sens, why is she white 😀
I love every single drawing mostly the Wendy one and are you going to do one of Elsa or Anna from Frozen
