Grumpy Cat Meets Disney

Digital artist Eric Proctor imagines how the internet’s crabbiest cat would fit into the world of Disney. All the illustrations in the series are delightfully amusing, and a few are laugh-out-loud funny.   Be sure to check out the titles for each piece as well for a nice diversion this dreary Friday the thirteenth! “Part of Your No” “Some Day My No Will Come”…
