Artist Reimagines Disney Characters as Smartphone Users

One FairyFAIL is an Instagram page created by a talented artist named Omar, who focuses on reimagining Disney characters as people living in the 21st century. She is currently depicting images for her newest series titled Phone Fairy Fails, where she illustrates our favorite figures as smartphone users. The idea was born while browsing through social media and seeing the selfies people take with these face filters on.

“I think that because cartoons and Disney characters, in particular, are so magical and supposedly perfect that it’s funny to me to suddenly think of them as regular people going through these realistic and not so fun experiences as we all go through in real life and how they react to these experiences,” she said in an interview for Bored Panda.

The graphic designer and self-taught illustrator finds inspiration in everyday life, whether being based on her personal experience or something she finds scrolling through social media. Emil from Ratatouille taking photos of his food, Ursula being naughty in the Photo Booth, or Merida attempting to brush her hair with a fork, are just some of the hilarious images Omar posted on her newest account.

She currently has over 5,000 followers, but we’re sure her numbers will shortly increase. If you’re fond of Disney movies, check out the gallery below.
