A London Artist’s Smart Critique Of Modern Life With A Little Help From Disney Characters

aa

Tom Ward is an illustrator and a graphic designer from London, who found a powerful and effective way of poking a stick at the woes of the modern world: through remakes of everyone’s favorite cartoons characters. In his Alt Disney project, Ward puts the popular heroes and heroines in a contemporary setting and situations unprecedented in their original world, thus pointing a finger at our own flaws and shortcomings.

Check out a selection of Ward’s work and make sure you check his Instagram account, Tom Ward Studio, for more fascinating pictures.
