Disney Princesses Reveal Their Dark Sides In Creepy Illustrations By Jeffrey Thomas

The princesses that star in Disney’s classic movies inhabit beautiful fantasy worlds, but it apparently doesn’t take much to turn these into dark, nightmarish realms. Jeffrey Thomas, a cartoon artist and character designer in California, reimagines what our favorite Disney heroines would look like if their worlds were a whole lot darker and creepier.

Thomas isn’t the first artist to re-visit the world of his childhood from a decidedly more adult perspective; Dan LuVisi has also created artwork that seeks to shatter our happy childhood worlds.

If you like Thomas’ work, be sure to check out his DeviantArt and his blog!

The creepiest one is Pocahontas given that she represents an actual historical figure and given THAT history, it really stands out ...
