Think of Disney, which is well on the way to becoming the entire entertainment industry, and you think of sweet, uplifting characters, great morality and an uplifting, often inspiring take on life.

Ah but not if you’re French artist Giles Bousquet who has imagined what Disney’s many iconic characters might look like on the less sunny side of the street.

It isn’t pretty but by god, it’s fabulouslu hilarious and the artwork is evocative, clever and a lot of fun.

If you like the idea of wandering down to the seedier side of things with Donald, Winnie the Pooh or Pinnochio, you can check out his work and buy his prints at his shop.
