Illustrator Reimagines Famous Celebrities as Iconic Disney Characters

Artist Helen Morgun has a knack for finding the Disney twin of famous celebrities. Her captivating digital illustrations merge actresses and singers with their animated likeness, even including their animal companions. Listed among her star-studded portfolio are Amanda Seyfried as Rapunzel, Blake Lively as Sleeping Beauty, and Lucy Liu as Mulan.

Before Morgun begins sketching, the artist scours Disney's repertoire of princesses, queens, villainesses, and more to find the perfect match for the celebrity she has in mind. Then, using a photo of the star as a reference, Morgun carefully renders each subject in Photoshop. During this time, the artist adds clothes and accessories reminiscent of the Disney character. Occasionally, Morgun also adds the co-starring animal companion to the composition. For example, in the portrait of Rihanna as Tiana from The Princess and the Frog, the famous singer sports Tiana's jewelry and gloves from the movie and is accompanied by Prince Naveen as a frog. The recently Grammy awarded singer-songwriter Billie Eilish also makes an appearance in Morgun's art as the white-haired Kida from the film Atlantis: The Lost Empire. Additionally, Margot Robbie stars as Elsa in the Frozen 2-inspired illustration.
