Artist Reimagines 5 Disney Dads As Real People And They Look Like Hollywood Actors

Published 5 months ago

Jirka Väätäinen is a Finnish graphic designer and illustrator whose illustrations of Disney characters in real life went viral a few years ago. Now the artist is back with a handful of new illustrations – this time he reimagined Disney dads as real people and they look like they could be real Hollywood actors.

Jirka reimagined 5 characters many people may not remember that vividly – Tarzan’s dad John, Pocahontas’s dad Chief Powhatan, Aladdin’s father Cassim, Ariel’s father King Triton, and Hercules’ father Zeus.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Jirka said the project started with him wanting to give King Triton a realistic makeover since “The Little Mermaid” is his favorite Disney Movie. Since it was a while since the artist had done such a series, he decided to take on other Disney father figures as well.

“This whole Disney project of mine has gone on for eight years, and to be honest, I do struggle with finding the time and inspiration to keep on creating more,” said Jirka. “Having said that, it has still remained a fun thing to do if I do find spare time, though. So we will have to see when this wave of inspiration hits me again.”

“Professionally, I’ve always been an art director & graphic designer first, and consider to be an illustrator on the side,” says Jirka. “But I am into all visual things, and one of my biggest interests has got a lot to do with fashion and my personal style, which are something I regularly share on my social media, too.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
