Princess Leia as Alexander Hamilton. Stitch donning Jayne“s cunning hat. Belle getting her nose out of a book to join Doctor Who in his TARDIS. These are all beautifully rendered imaginings of Massachusetts-based artist Karen Hallion.
Her work includes art nouveau takes on Galadriel, Leia, and Labyrinth“s Sarah, a Norman Rockwell-inspired tribute to Firefly”s Kaylee, and a series featuring the TARDIS greeting Disney princesses and other fairy tale characters.
Karen“s art is available on prints, notecards, and often on T-shirts on sites like TeeFury and Threadless. Also among her work is a Spirited Away-inspired kimono for fangirl fashion line Her Universe.
Last month Karen was at San Diego Comic-Con, where we checked out her booth in Artist Alley on the exhibit hall floor.
Explore more of her sweet, fandom-combining art and see her at work on a sketch in the HitFix video below.
