Artist Turns Pet Photos into Adorable Disney Animated Animals. Get ready to say “Awwww!” a lot in this post.
Dutch illustrator, Isa Bredt, started drawing pet submissions as classic 2D animated “Disney-fied” characters and the artwork is adorable. Bredt refers to this practice as “disneyfication” and created an Instagram account dedicated to featuring her work. The drawings have recently gone viral online and it’s very clear why!
“Pet disneyfications is something I did very sporadically in my free time for about 5 years,” Bredt shared when speaking with Bored Panda. “I started because I was and still am a big fan of both drawing animals and the old Disney style.”
She went not say she is not a Disney animator, but wanted to practice the iconic 2D animation style associated with the House of Mouse and offered to do free drawings with photo submissions from fellow Reddit users.
“I am just a very big fan. The Lion King is my all time favorite movie, I used to watch it daily as a child. I adore the old animal movies; Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmatians, the Aristocats. There was a subreddit where you could offer free art to people. I wanted to practice the Disney style, so I offered free drawings for people who would send me pictures of their pets.”
“I did this a few times and people really enjoyed it, though I wasn’t very good yet,” she explained. “Then, last summer, I decided to take on commissions as a summer job because I didn’t want to work in the food service industry again, and it went well enough that I decided to create an Instagram and do the commissions as a side job.”
Bredt’s work is “paws”itively adorable and features many kinds of animals, but a good chunk of the work featured Cats and Dogs from many backgrounds. Some opportunities are more candid than others, but we could easily see that the drawings seem to jump right out of classic Disney films!
