Disney as paintings. John Arthur Lomax – A musical interlude

“Since I was very young, I have always loved to draw Disney movie characters. I never thought about the repercussion that my versions of art paintings could have when I showed them for the first time.

This project came about after I finished my Fine Arts degree because, as an artist, I realized that many people didn’t know many of the paintings in the history of art and I thought I could present them in a more original way. I had been a long time with several finished illustrations without showing them to the public, only some family and friends had seen them, but honestly, I had not considered showing them to the public until one day, I decided to do it and shared them.

The support and the repercussion that those first illustrations I had made had was so great that it encouraged me to continue showing that project in a more serious way. In this way, I began to see how thanks to those comparisons, I would also help to make known many works of art and artists from different periods that, in many cases, were not so common for the public,”  shared the artist with Earthwonders.  <

To create that resemblance the artist does a lot of research to find the character that matches the painting the best.  He shares his work on his Instagram, where now counts over 41k follower. His work is quite successful and his project was very well welcomed by the audience.

“Honestly from the viewer’s point of view, when I upload my illustrations on social networks it might seem easy to get to the same idea. Actually, there is a very long research work behind each illustration and especially in the search for images that may be interesting to me, regardless of the character that I may or may not do later.

Maybe the most complicated thing is to find works that I find interesting to version, a work of art that is visually interesting and finds similarity with the story or that physically there is a resemblance with a character that I would like to use. At other times, I may not have much resemblance to the character, but if you do a little more research on the work, many times I make the decision based on the theme or the scene depicted in the painting,” explained Carlos.

To achieve the final results, the artist says there’s a long process of work beforehand. He’s constantly looking at images of paintings because they are something of interest to him. Often times, Carlos find paintings or works that interest him with actions as simple as using social networks and he always keeps them if he likes to use them in the future.

“Once I have the work chosen, I decide which character I would like to include in that version. Although sometimes I have the idea pretty much decided, when I don’t, I usually go back to it in a few days until I’m sure if that idea is interesting to do or not. The most important part is when I start to plan the drawing and make little sketches to compose the image and then, I make the final line art correctly for illustration.
I think my favorite part of the whole work process is when I apply the first spots of color and lights because at that moment is when you see a preview of what the image will be once finished.”
