Virginie Morillo - the Sinister Side of Walt

Now this is my kinda artist!
Virginie Morillo shows us the REAL side of cuddly Disney Characters.
Oh what Walt doesn't want you to see.
Morillo often renders Disney characters with other more naturalistic figures to create absurd and slightly deviant situations. The artist has referred to herself as a "natural born Walt Disney character killer," as she takes control of the childhood characters and causes them to act outside of their originally illustrated behavior.
