He likes to create digital fan arts of some of Disney's well-loved characters such as Stitch and Simba, turning them into street-smart, modern youths. We're thrilled to see many of these Disney characters as tattooed college students, with tattoos like sugar skulls and Harry Potter-inspired designs.  “I try to make Disney/Pixar characters in young and stylish concepts, some kind of ‘students’, something like the new Pixar's Movie: Monster University,” he explains.
