Artist Turns Disney Princesses Into Pin-up Girls
Disney princesses have worn more guises than anyone. Andrew Tarusov imagines them as pin-up girls. Catering to a more adult fantasy than the movies, his illustrations are definitely meant for people who are children only at heart. Pin-ups predate Disney, and have a long history of controversy. Were they empowering women to enjoy their beauty after a prudish Victorian age, or hurting their self image, virtue and the society’s morals?
Andrew Tarusov is an experienced artist, having worked with Cosmopolitan, Maxim and Rolling Stone. Originally from Russia, he now lives and works in Los Angeleas, California. He professes love of vintage pin-ups and comics, though that didn’t stop him from project like imagining how cartoon characters would look when they got old.
