  1. Sublime stuff, Row. You really should put this in the face of movers and shakers in the industry.
    The Snow White one gets to the ‘heart’ of the problem. If anyone has ever read the Grimm original – well, it’s grislier than Hollywood; and more real. Terrible ending for the baddy.

  2. But, my favourite is Pinnochio. The escaping ‘ I ‘ is a lovely concept. It is his nose!
    The lying nose runs away from his identity. Bloody good, my boy!

  3. Snow White is amazing!
    Great job!

  4. They are all poster graphic and would look great on any enormous placing on a motorway. You got something there.

  5. Love the colour choice, particularly the monochrome. My favourite is the Bambi one. The ” Tree antlers” are magic !

  6. I like the Aristocats one best. It looks… aristocratic. Moreso than any actual poster for the film has.

  7. I really like the Snow White and the 101 Dalmatians posters. I want to like the Alice in Wonderland one but I can’t quite figure it out. Is that supposed to be the Queen of Hearts? If so, why does she the clubs symbol on her head?

  8. I love, love, love them all!! Every single one is beautiful and clever. My favorite is Peter Pan!

  9. It is the Queen of Hearts, and the clubs symbol is doubling as her crown!

  10. Snow White poster is my favorite!!

  11. I like the Peter Pan the best. The clock splitting the scenes is great.

  12. WOW! These are all so amazing! I particularly enjoyed the Bambi and Little Mermaid posters.

  13. Bambi is elegant and disturbing. I like it the best – but the Lion King shows a visceral power using a realistic lion (i.e. his teeth). 101 Dalmations gets kudos for being cute. And it took me a minute to get the clock/watch split between the sides. All in all, a very appealing and witty presentation of the titles.

  14. Snow White!

  15. Where’s dalmatian #72?

  16. I think the Sleeping Beauty is the best. Now I’ve thought about it. It’s sexy. The Prince’s pathway to his destined love crawls over her chest! And, then the kiss in the castle! Enough classical fairy tale and no spoiler endowed in image.
    Where’s Yiannas gone?

  17. Peter Pan, definitely – the Big Ben/Crocodile mix/match-up was perfect, right down to the clock in both of them. It also gives the very strong impression that Neverland is just a flick of an eye away from wherever you are

  18. Peter Pan and Snow White are my favorites… What a great set of posters. Really first rate.

  19. the colours… great!

  20. Pinocchio is so clever! I love the Eastern European look of the design. They’re all wonderful.

  21. #72 was put down in pre-production as it was extremely depressed about the over-sentimilisation of its role.

  22. The Bambi one is really great, and the Lion King one also ! Although some are really simple, it’s really interesting and so much prettier than the actual movie posters !
    Keep up the good work :)

  23. My favorites:
    1. Snow White
    2. 101 dalmatians
    3. Bambi
    4. The little Mermaid

  24. The best are not Disney. They are pure fairytale. They tap into the dark roots of the centuries-old tales. Disney appropriated them, as cultural memories from nursery days for all Western people. Rowan has re-appropriated them, and needs no Disney back reference. They are tales of dream and wonder – Disney owns nothing about such stuff. They live in our dreams; without animation.

  25. GENIUS

  26. I really like the Bambi poster. It captures the essence of a deer losing his innocence on the night of his mother’s death – kind of how ours was lost when we witnessed this event during childhood. However, like Bambi, we grew up to be fully functional adults.

  27. For Disney, it’s spelled Dwarfs! (But nice poster!!!)

    • Hi Jeremy! Yeah, Rowan realised this, I believe he put the corrected version on tumblr.

  28. These are ALL amazing! I would really love to see a Pocahontas one though. :)

  29. are some subtle ways to pass through the veil of Diney films, a look back with a humorous tone to films that are classic

  30. I am absolutely in love with the Snow White graphic. Beautiful designs!

  31. I love that Lion King one! Beauty and the Beast would be cool!

  32. Copyright problems do not arise with classic fairy stories and others. They are public domain after 50-70 years. This is why they are free to download as ebooks.
