Seventy Two Illustration and Design is one girl show based in Croatia, Europe. She is a lover of jazz, a coffee addict and creates custom illustrations as well as prints, posters and apparel design for fun. She has a wonderful series that she calls “Old Story, New Ending” which features some iconic characters from Disney and fairy tale lore.
“The main idea was to revive those beautiful stories from our childhood but with some new endings. Inspiration comes from stories and from beautiful women. I think every woman has the right to be a princess, to be someone special in someone else’s life and that’s the idea I wanted to present.”
“Anyway, that ‘new ending’ is just a phrase because I want people to imagine their own end, based on images, attitude and confidence they can see on the characters. They are all strong characters and whatever they suffered in stories or whatever they’ve been through – now it’s all gone. And yeah, some people can easily relate to that.”
Of course I had to ask her if she had a favorite from the series and she said: “My favorite ones are Little Red Riding Hood and Pocahontas (you can watch the process work video below). I like their shape, their colors, attitude and strong but dreamable atmosphere.”
Personally I love the image of Snow White. To see more of her work and learn more about her you can check out her WEBSITE, BEHANCE PORTFOLIO or FACEBOOK page.
