Disney Villains Sugar Skull Prints


Mexico-inspired Day of the Dead calaveras have become an aesthetic phenomenon – appearing on apparel, inked on arms, jazzing up jewellery…they’ve infiltrated every nook and cranny of contemporary culture. Nothing has escaped their reach, including Disney – aggravating the bubblegum graphics that typify the mass media corporation’s pretentious personality with the brazen beauty of sugar skull art is just irresistible.

Graphic artist Mickel Yantz has interpreted Disney’s fiendish foes with innovation and intuition – the temperament of each villain is reflected in the respective designs, which, in the spirit of calavera character, puts the sass into skull, bringing life to a symbol that is conventionally synonymous with doom and death.

Pop culture applauds with vehemence.
