Graphic Art: Disney Movie Posters as You’ve Never Seen them Before

We’d like to introduce you to an incredible artist, who interprets Disney films in a way all his own. Rowan Stocks-Moore is a freelance designer from Liverpool, UK. With a degree in Graphic Design, he has gone on to “produce bold and contemporary design work for theaters, musicians, clubs, galleries and most notably for The Walt Disney Company.” The story of how he gained popularity on the internet and regained his confidence is nothing less than it’s own Cinderella Story.

Rowan came from a family of artists. “My grandfather was a glass engraver, and my mother, although a primary school teacher by trade, is an excellent portrait artist, so I think the creative bug had bit me before I was even conceived.”

“One day I decided to produce a series of alternative posters for Disney films. I am a child at heart, and have a great affection for Disney films and children’s films in general, so it was a natural choice of subject matter. Once finished, I showed the designs to a few friends, one of whom runs a culture blog, and he liked them enough to feature them on it. From then the designs went viral, shared on other blogs, featuring in The Observer, Elle magazine, The Huffington Post and many sites online, even garnering a tweet from the Oscar Academy!”

“Early on I began receiving requests for prints of the designs and so before I knew it I had set up my own business. The continued success of these designs has presented me with a platform to promote my previous design work, has led to more work opportunities, and above all given me back the confidence in my ability that had begun to wane. I have just completed freelance work for the Walt Disney Company, which was a dream come true and something that would have seemed unimaginable just six months earlier.”

We just love these 13 alternative Disney Film Posters he created. We can’t wait to see where his talents take him!
