Artist Marciano Palácio has created an amazing series of artwork called “Disney Princess for All” to show little boys and men alike they can be Disney fans too!
Marciano Palácio is famous for drawing several pop culture characters with his own artistic flair, character from shows such as Riverdale, Supernatural & American Horror Story! However, our favorite work is his “Disney Princess for All” series. Challenging traditional male stereotypes imposed by society, through his artwork, Marciano is encouraging boys and men to feel comfortable with their love for Disney.

Wingapo! 🍃 The last one from this series! I really wanted to draw all Disney princesses and non-princesses, but I would spend a lot of time involved in this project. And now I need to develop something else. ❤️ I chose Pocahontas to finish this series because @shopdisney released a Limited Edition doll from her this week, and also because she is the favorite princess of my all time favorite doll youtuber: Joey, from @beautyinsideabox 😊 #disney #pocahontas #fanart #illustration #digitalart #artwork #art #artfido #digitalpainting #artistsoninstagram #instaart #igart #arts_help #artistic_unity_ #_art_help_ #artmg03 #draw #drawing #cartoon
In an interview with Hornet, Marciano wants to represent the men who grew up loving Disney and how the Disney Princesses speak to the little boys who feel the same today! Back in 2016, he created an illustration of Princess Jasmine meeting a little girl and how it was “like she was facing a younger version of herself in that little girl”. Through this piece, Marciano grew in popularity as the picture resonated with so many females.

However, this made the artist “think what it would be like to draw these Disney Princesses meeting little fanboys, representing other guys like me”. After posting the art, he saw “other male artists started to draw little versions of them finding the princesses”. He felt that this is the meaning of what it is to be an artist, “to touch people, inspire them to feel something about their life”, to feel “represented or warmed in a little place in their hearts”.
He also loved being able to spread the message that it is “ok for boys to feel inspired by strong female examples”, that “women as with men, can be really awesome role models for everyone, no matter their age, sexual identity, race or anything else.”Thank you Marciano Palácio for your amazing message and beautiful Disney inspired art!
