What do you get when you cross famous Disney male characters with homoerotic designs? Well, for one, you get a very awkward arousal from me. But, more importantly, you get artist David Kawena’s incredible artwork from his Disney Heroes collection.
I’ve admittedly seen a few of these images around the net for some time now, but other than a passing appreciation for the design, I’ve never paid them much attention. I came across David Kawena’s Facebook and Tumblr pages last night, however, and I’ve been transfixed by his work since then.
I understand perfectly that these are drawings of cartoons, but I’m weirdly attracted to all of them, and I really don’t know how to feel about that. I don’t get how Disney manages to do this to me. I will watch any given wilderness show on Nat Geo and see nothing but a dangerous, predatory lion. The second Disney becomes involved, I start realising how good-looking Simba is. What the actual hell?!
