Eliminating the ‘Once Upon A Time’ fantasy emblematic of a Disney film’s storyline, artist Jeff Hong imagines a harsh reality for familiar childhood heroes in his ‘Unhappily Ever After‘ series. The montages re-imagine what might be the day-to-day lives of Disney characters if they experienced the real world, overcome by traumas and tribulations. The irony inherent in the illustrations makes a sad case for modern culture, and dissolves the delusion of wonder and awe reinforced throughout Disney features.
