In 2012, I started the #AnimationInReality project, two years ago when I bought my new smartphone. I was checking out the camera and taking pictures all over Athens when I came across a cloud that looked like the Batman logo. The moment I started editing this photo the idea was born in my mind.
Big break: Last October, when Beth Ditto and Marc Jacobs shared one of my photos, which was Ursula [from The Little Mermaid] as Beth Ditto on the runway.
I decide which characters to pair with each photo, Sometimes I am inspired by the character/aura of the celebrity, sometimes by his/her style that matches the cartoon, and there are also the times that I focus on humor and spontaneity!
Disney characters were our childhood's celebrities. I would like to help the now-adult audience to be able to follow their once-favorite celebs in contemporary situations and thus make them a little bit nostalgic for an "innocence lost era," which with a little bit of imagination is not that lost after all. You just have to take a look at my Instagram!
