Illustrator Rachael Wise Takes Fairy Tales To A Dark, Dark Place



[View All on One Page]

I always knew fairy tales are much darker than Disney would have you believe, but man, illustrator Rachael Wise takes it to a new level with her series of F***ed Up Tales. I’ve pulled a few of my favorites to show you, and if you like the shock to your inner child you can see the rest at her Tumblr.

Warning: The last pic features nudity (non-sexualized; it’s just the Little Mermaid without her Disney-created seashell bra) and some gore. Stop at Snow White if you’d rather not see it.

(Thanks, anonymous tipster!)

    these are gorgeous, but c’mon, spelling counts! “ella though she might give herself a new name” indeed!

    The Red Riding Hood one though!

    A steampunk, futuristic retelling of The Little Mermaid, though. :3
