I don't know if what can be called "inverted Disney art" has the ability to shock anymore with its desire to remove the wholesome label and replace it with a not exactly unwholesome but a more human perspective.
Gay Disney Princes and Princesses have long been a part of every LGBT project and artist for the last couple of years. So mixing and matching the two is no longer shocking when it's the 13th or 14th iteration. For a young artist trying to get noticed, it is more of a coming out statement.
The same for the tattoo and grunge princes and princesses. It is not shocking, just an expression of their humanity.
Making bad choices is part of the humanity movement also. Disney characters taking drug and with drug addictions? Been there, done that. Princesses suffering through post-happy-ever-after reality? Seen that, too.
The same goes for the Disney Animal Kingdom. Cats hunt. It is no big deal to have them proudly displaying their caught prey. Deer rut and mate and go into heat. When spring comes accidental threesomes are more the norm than the exception.
So, what would be beyond the pale? Bestiality, pedophilia, craven-psychopathic-homicide would surely be met with a take down notice, followed by a cease and desist letter, and finally a copyright infringement law suit from the Disney legal team.
Enjoy the humanity exhibited here. None of it is particularly awful, just specifically frail and human. The inhuman Disney may just be around the corner.
