Disney princesses are subjected to makeovers on a regular basis, but fans of characters like Snow White or Ariel from The Little Mermaid probably never thought they’d see the day where Miguel Gutierrez would morph them into zombies. And if you’re thinking the Bogota-based artist was simply going to change the skin color of these female heroines and give them a few gnarly gashes, think again because Gutierrez doesn’t hold back; Snow White’s face is effectively skeletal and Ariel’s tail is reduced to fin and bones.
Thus far, Miguel Gutierrez has only produced two images of what will likely become a full-fledged series. He also incorporates the phrase “Zombieland” into each image, an obvious play on “Disneyland.” One has to wonder what the crew of the film Zombieland have to say about Gutierrez’s collection.
