Most of us only know the Disney versions of fairytales—at least that’s what I refer to when I think of Snow White, Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty. Julian Callos, however, sees the fairytales that preceded Disney, the ones that Disney softened and made cute in order to appeal to children.

The artwork of Julian Callos revolves around fairytale themes of princesses and animals, but takes on a decidedly morbid spin with dead motifs, skulls, and an overall goulish essence. Click through the gallery to see more of Julian Callos’ morbid work.
