Jason Carne | Disney Villians Artwork for Disney
Jason shares about the project:
Getting to partner up with Walt-Disney on this piece was an amazing opportunity. Like many other artists, my childhood was filled with Disney movies on VHS that I rewinded and rewatched until the tape wore out. I loved many of their animated films, but the one that stood above the rest for me was always The Lion King, so when I got to letter and animate the phrase “Long Live the King” from Jeremy Irons’ perfect performance of scar, I couldn’t have been happier. The project called for an aesthetic and tone that was darker than expected for Walt-Disney, so this blackletter-turned-neon piece seemed to be the perfect way to give Scars’ leering eyes and scathing words some new life.
