Jirka Väätäinen just became our favorite artist of the year.
Graphic designer Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen created a whole collection of Disney Princes that look real enough to make you swipe right. From Hercules and Tarzan to Prince Eric and Prince Charming, the illustrations capture the qualities of each character in a way that brings the characters to life in true Disney fashion. You don’t have to be a Disney fan to appreciate the magic of these whimsical creations.
Väätäinen, who’s Facebook you should Like, also recreated the Disney Princesses and they’re just as enchanting as the Princes. Perhaps the most amazing aspect of his work is that he uses Photoshop to create modern-day masterpieces reflecting classic fairy tales.
