Have you ever wished your favorite cartoon characters were real? Italian artist Luigi Kemo Volo illustrates popular Disney icons to look as though they’re coming to life on paper. From Winnie the Pooh to Sleeping Beauty, he cleverly creates the illusion that each character is living between the lines of his writing pad.
By redrawing straight, notebook lines in a variety of playful perspectives, Volo produces visual distortions across the flat surfaces of the page. The pages appear as veils between reality and the cartoon world. In one image, Alice from Alice and Wonderland pulls open the lined page like a curtain, before stepping into her technicolor dream world. In another, Winnie the Pooh appears to peep out from the page to quickly grab a piece of chocolate.
