Recently it seems there have been a ton of Disney related mash ups appearing in the art world and on the Internet. People like James Hance have been doing this kind of thing for years, mashing up favourite pieces of fandom into Disney styled pieces. When Disney bought the Marvel brand however, artists far and wide could hardly contain them-selves, knocking out tons of different Disney/ Marvel related pieces.
However with Fernando Mendonca’s work, I saw something different. With his pieces it looks like you are actually looking at an animation cell, like a slice of the film has been taken off the reel and put directly in front of you. Now I know most film is digital now so the description does not entirely work, but you get the idea. His work is animated is the point I am making!
What Fernando has done is taken core characters from fandom and re-created them in a new and exciting way. The Game of Thrones pieces are spot on (and hopefully more of them will arrive on the internet in the future), but his take on things like Scooby Doo and Jack Sparrow are also hugely entertaining. Below is a selection of his work from his Deviant Art page. Below is a selection of some of my favourites from his Deviant Art page. At this present time I could not find any sites that sold his prints. If, however you dear reader find some links for them, then please feel free to post them in the replies section below so we can all check them out.
Fernando has his own Twitter feed, but alas it is not in English making it difficult for me to see what he has in the works. Still feel free to check it out, I will keep popping on just in the hope that he finishes off those incredible Game of Thrones pieces!
