Disney has a distinct style of animation that has been present ever since Walt Disney first created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in 1927.
Human characters are given slim, elongated necks, large eyes with big pupils, and turned-up noses. While Disney’s animals were often created with human-like qualities. The transformation of normal characteristics into Disney’s signature style is often referred to as “Disneyfication.”
22-year-old, Isa Bredt is a Dutch artist who uses her artistic talents to turn peoples’ dogs into Disney characters. A process she calls “Pet Disneyfication”. In a recent interview with Bored Panda, she said ”Disneyfication is a mode of transport. One that gets animals into the animation world.”
“Pet Disneyfication” was started as a part-time hobby for Isa a few years ago and it gradually developed in a full-time occupation for her. “I started because I was and still am a big fan of both drawing animals and the old Disney style,” Isa told Bored Panda.
Don’t be fooled, however, even though Isa’s illustrations look almost like screenshots from a Disney film, she’s not a Disney employee. “I am just a very big fan. The Lion King is my all time favorite movie, I used to watch it daily as a child, I adore the old animal movies; Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmatians, the Aristocats.”, she told Bored Panda.
Even though Isa has closed her commissions until late September, you can still find tons of extra lovable examples of Bredt’s work on Instagram!
