Flemish Superheroes


Artist and Costume designer Jackie Tadeoni takes a new spin on superheroes costumes in Flemish style.

What if Superman was born in the sixteenth century?
And what if the Hulk was a Duke?
How might Van Eyck have portrayed Snow White?

The collection demonstrates the use of 17 century techniques counterpointing light and shadow to illustrate nobility and fragility of the super powerful of all times. It also invites you to celebrate the heroes of your childhood. These characters have become icons to reveal their humanity: tired of having to save the world without respite, promised to a destiny of endless immortality, forever trapped in their character.
The superheroes often live their lives cloaked in anonymity. These portraits give them a chance to « fix » their narcissism denied. By the temporal disturbance they produce, these images allow us to discover, under the patina of time, an unexpected melancholy of those who are to be invincible.

As science fiction meets history of art, time meets an inexhaustible desire for mythology which is within each of us.

From Goldilocks to Rapunzel passing by the classic Cinderella, Brian Cummings reviewed most of the fairy tales to recreate them in a modern and trashy version. This photographer and director from Saint Louis, MO, made Snow White get a tattoo, Cinderella get drunk and Rapunzel cut her hair. This mix between Spring Breakers and Disney was edited with an amazing technique and a lot of talent.

The Disney Movie Reinvented.


If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times… I despise putting work up, and having no idea what-so-ever who it’s from.  That being said, in rare cases, the work is just so dope, I have no choice but to show it off regardless.  These set of re-tooled Disney movie posters are beyond dope.  There aren’t too many other words to describe them.  They perfectly prove the point of the original story, and in some of the 10 cases, bring out a darker, more sinister side of the tale (like the Lion King, or the Bambi posters).  Whoever made these, I’m super impressed.

Minimalistic Fairy Tales.


If the posters for the well-known fairy tales do in a minimalist style …

Paperface – “Wishery”


From the “Get Off My Crumb” mixtape to the new “Planet of the Papes”, lyrical dynamo Paperface never ceases to amaze with his diverse and inventive style, and unique content. But when he showed me the beat “Wishery” he stumbled upon, I knew I had to put it up, its a whole new beast. The beat was compiled entirely from samples of the 1937 Disney classic “Snow White”. Producers and DJ’s alike should take note of the creativeness and skill leaking from every aspect of the track. Although the original source is anything but “gangsta”, the finished product is a ridiculously dope beat that has a classic vibe to it. Check the method below.

Now THAT is a Princess


Ok, so normally I have my opinion about a topic, and it pretty much ends there.  But when the comic book illustrator J Scott Campbell re-thought the Disney princesses, I figured I’d ask some of you guys which one you think is the best.  My personal favorite… Cinderella, followed swiftly by Arielle from The Little Mermaid.  But let me know what you guys think.

Snow White

The Little Mermaid

Sleeping Beauty

Alice In Wonderland

Beauty And The Beast

Cinderella

Tinkerbell

Maleficent
