Chances are if you’ve been stuck in quarantine, you’ve either changed your hair, made banana bread at least once, said you would have a quarantine glow-up, or done all of the above. But illustrator Tom Taylor is spending his quarantine imagining what Disney princes would be up to if they were social distancing, and bringing them to life.
Taylor has posted pictures of hot Disney princes cutting or dyeing their hair, baking, and working out on his Instagram, @tomtaylorillustrated.
Taylor posted a photo of Prince Eric bleaching his hair in the beginning of April, and his followers immediately wanted more.
Taylor followed up with a picture of Aladdin after buzzing his hair.
Fans flooded the comments section with positive reactions.
“So relatable,” one user commented with crying laughing emojis.
Another user said “guilty,” with the praising hands emoji.
Taylor posted countless other photos including Prince Naveen having a “self-care quarantine,” Tarzan baking banana bread, and Gaston working out, which would be posted on his TikTok, obviously.
And of course, there were tons of quarantine haircuts.
Taylor told BuzzFeed he has been drawing since he was 10 years old, and is mostly self-taught. Taylor said it only takes about an hour and a half to create the images, but can take longer to come up with a concept he likes.
“It seemed natural as the whole world is in quarantine now that [the Disney men] would be too,” he told BuzzFeed.
Taylor told BuzzFeed being a queer illustrator with a queer following influences his work as well.
“It gives a tiny insight into what these characters could be up to if they were part of society,” he told BuzzFeed. “Body positivity also plays a big part, as I like to incorporate a slightly more realistic male figure, especially when there’s so much pressure during quarantine to be productive.”
