disney mucha princess 1

I can’t get enough of art nouveau style and Disney princesses, so these Mucha inspired Disney designs are right up my alley. The beautiful illustrations are by Hannah Alexander, and she’s reimagined several princesses from Elsa to Mulan. She’s taken great care with the princess designs and embellishments, and she’s also chosen flowers to fit each character. For example, the flowers seen in the above image of Elsa are snow drops; they’re a sign of spring. Couldn’t be more perfect.

Though prints of the Disney princesses are not available, you can contact the artist about commissions for either busts or full body illustrations. She also has prints and jewelry designs available on Etsy.

Drool over more of the series after the break.

The art nouveau style of Alphonse Mucha suits just about any subject, and it makes the ladies of Game of Thrones positively shine. These posters by Elin Jonsson show the likes of Daenerys, Margaery, Sansa, and Brienne (with a bear!) in stunning form. The artist seemingly chose the perfect color pallette for each character and included all the right details. For example, Brienne’s piece includes sapphires and Dany’s features Khal Drogo. A set of these prints would look lovely on any wall.

The characters of Hayao Miyazaki’s film are memorable. He’s weaved the kind of stories that stay with you and inspire you to create. In this case, it inspired Pixiv user marlboro to put together lush art nouveau style art for characters like Totoro and Sophie from Howl’s Moving Castle. Each image is packed with details from the film it depicts, and it’s easy to get lost in them. Catbus in Totoro’s image is my favorite.

These beautiful Art Nouveau images were done by Deviant Artist kishokahime who selected some beloved heroines from 80’s movies and drew each of them as a portrait. Some of these are from animated films like Anastasia and others are from live-action classics like Willow and Labyrinth. There are also references to the movies incorporated into the border artwork, like Beetlejuice at the top of Lydia’s portrait. It’s a beautiful and nostalgic trip down movie memory lane.
