Muksin, an artist and illustrator based in Jakarta, Indonesia has always been fascinated with Disney characters. With a talent for photoshop, he has changed up the image of Ariel, Jasmine and other princesses into present-day celebrities for a while now, but decided to change this up a bit. 


Instead of showing the princesses into existing reality, he has brought the reality of the now into their lives by stripping away the fairytale stories and substituting it with everyday nuances, pizzas and selfies. 

In an interview with Bored Panda, Muksin said: “My [history] with Disney goes way back. It all started with a VHS tape of Alice in Wonderland I received as a birthday gift when I was about 5 or 6. I was obsessed with it. I would watch it almost every single day after school. Not long after that, the Disney Renaissance era started, the obsession became a bit out of control and cemented my status as a Disney fanboy.”


“These characters have stuck with me since childhood, so it kinda came naturally for me to make fan arts of them. But instead of “remaking” them in my own aesthetic style, I put a naughty twist on them. Over time, as I kept posting my Disney stuff, I noticed that more and more people re-shared them on their Instagram, and I got more and more positive DMs and comments as well. So I guess people liked them.” 

The illustrator said that he doesn’t have a method of choosing the characters and photos he wants to edit. He just gets ideas and inspiration at the most random times, and begins from there. 


“I think that Disney characters blend into our everyday lives so well because lots of people, including myself, grew up with them. These characters are constantly revitalized through wide arrays of innovations. From Broadways, Disneyland rides, merchandise, and now Live Action remakes. These things brought them to iconic status. So I guess they blend so well with our everyday life because they are so well known.”

After seeing their favourite Disney characters and the lives they would’ve led in this era, Muskin’s fans are already asking for more childhood memories. Looks like this Indonesian Photoshop celebrity won’t be stopping anytime soon.
