Isabelle Staub is a US-based artist who specialises in portraiture and character design. Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, she uses her skills to turn cartoon characters and popular culture icons into her own unique and often super lifelike creations. Seeking inspiration in everything from Disney princesses and Powerpuff Girls to Pennywise the Clown and Tarantino movies, Staub transforms each of her subjects with a wholly distinct style of her own. Scroll down to see for yourself, and click here for some of her best Disney work.

“From the moment I could hold a pencil, I was drawing and creating everyday,” she writes. “Art is a direct reflection of the artist. As such, my artwork is a reflection of who I am, constantly evolving and improving and not limited to one medium or style. I let my art tell viewers a story, connecting them to a place, time and emotion. I pour my heart, mind and soul into every piece I create.”

I like it. It's unfortunate that everyone feels they have to be so critical.

I can't decide which I like better... #5 or #8. In both cases, the character seems to have been brought to literal life, with richness and depth. Amazing work!

I like it, I always found Snow White kind of sickly and creepy to look at, she basically has a babies face but with make up on, but here she looks normal.

This is the first one I've seen where Ms. Straub kept that "Disneyness" in her portrait, that fresh-faced ingénue. Very nice!

Sorry to say, but this does not capture the loony, happy, yet rebellious spirit of the powerpuff girls, the quality of the illustration notwithstanding.
