Selfie Fables — Disney Alternative Art Illustrations by Simona Bonafini

What if Disney stories had Instagram?


Probably not a good idea.

Instagram has been a huge part of the social media sphere ever since its introduction in 2010. Created by software engineers Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, it gained rapid popularity with over 300 million active users at the end of 2014. It was so popular that social media giant Facebook purchased it for $1 billion in cash and equity.

If Disney fairy tales existed in real life, they would probably have Instagram too. Something freelance designer Simona Bonafini illustrated in her series Selfie Fables (which is still ongoing!)

Disney characters come to life as they share candid selfies using Instagram’s tilt-shift effect and filters complete with #modern #era #hashtags. Even other characters from their respective movies show up and comment on their pics.

Do you think these selfies need more Sutro? Comment below!


Kevin is a reader first, a writer second, and a gamer somewhere in between. When not rooting for Tyrion Lannister for the Iron Throne, he's probably writing some morbid short story. He enjoys some surreal art, clever advertising campaigns, and a warm cup of coffee while reading Murakami.
