Evil Cartoon Pin-Ups

Artist Andrew Tarusov Created a Series of Disney Villian Pin-Up Posters

— October 7, 2015 — Pop Culture
California-based artist and illustrator Andrew Tarusov created this quirky series of Disney villain pin-up posters. The collection is designed to present the traditionally terrifying looking characters as soft and sultry women.

Opposed to the gruesome image that is presented by Disney, Andrew has transformed each Disney villain into an approachable and almost gentle looking woman. The characters range from Ursula in 'The Little Mermaid' to Cruella de Vil from '101 Dalmatians.'

This series of Disney artwork is notable because of it’s subtle hint to each film, which can be seen through props within each image. The evil queen in Snow White for example, is dangling an apple between her fingertips. Additionally, the transformation from mean-looking characters to delicate pin-up posters is a remarkable alteration.
