Horny artists like to sex up Disney, fairy tale art




What is it with artists who like to take innocent Disney characters and classic children’s fairy tales and turn them into R-rated sex romps?
Maybe the sexuality was always there, under the surface. Who knows?
But what I do know is that these characters are in the public domain so artists can do whatever they please with them. And that’s a good thing. Artists can reveal something interesting about another’s work that way.

J. Scott Campbell and his 2010 calendar

Consider comic book illustrator J. Scott Campbell. He’s known for his highly sexualized drawings of beautiful women and kinetic action sequences.
He’s done a 2010 art calendar featuring sexy reinterpretations of fairy tale classics such as Snow White, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.
His artwork is amazing. Check out Campbell’s website (and online store) for more samples of his work.
Sexy fairy tale illustrations from artists, including Campbell, can be found in this post on AcidCow.com.

Brazil’s Platinum studio and its integrated digital photography

Platinum Image Conception Studio of Rio de Janiero recently got some publicity after stories about its art were posted on blogs Geek Tyrant and Spot Funs.
The studio, founded in 1991, specializes in combining photography and digital retouching. Platinum pioneered a concept called “integrated digital photography.” This technique mixes photos, illustrations and computer generated imagery in a seamless way.
The results are stunningly detailed and hyper real. The studio has reinterpreted such fairy tales as Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood with this technique. Check out the company’s website.
Platinum was founded by artist Leonardo Vilela. The award-winning studio now has a staff of 13 artists, including digital artist and graphic designer Flavio Albino and illustrator Luciano Honorato.
