Disney Ladies Turned Into Badass Jedi, Sith, & Other Star Wars Variations

We’ve seen some pretty great Disney/Star Wars mashups in our time and Ralph Sevelius’ latest is no exception. When he started the series, Sevelius admitted, “there has been so many reiterations of the Princesses” but that he really wanted to try his own. They’ve been so popular, they’ve already inspired some cosplay. Check out the gallery for all the fun!

Coloring Book Pages With Skeletons Drawn In Are Creepier Than They Have Any Right To Be

And the phrase “coloring book pages with skeletons drawn in” sounds like it would be creepy anyway! But not this creepy. No. Never this creepy. You can thank French illustrator Chris Panda‘s X-Ray series for the awesomeness and the nightmares.

Mom Lets 4-Year-Old Daughter Complete Her Illustrations To Amazing Effect

Artist Mica Angela Hendricks was in a difficult spot. Her daughter had a penchant for commandeering her art supplies but she desperately wanted to try out a new sketchbook. So she did, and so her daughter asked to use it, as predicted. When Hendricks resisted, her daughter said, “If you can’t share, we might have to take it away if you can’t share.” That’s one smart cookie. “Not surprisingly, I LOVED what she drew,” wrote Hendricks. “She never hesitated in her intent. She wasn’t tentative. She was insistent and confident that she would of course improve any illustration I might have done…And the thing is, she DID.” Take a look at what the mother/daughter duo created.
