Mike Roshuk is an Edmonton, Alberta-based artist and photographer. He has created a new series of Disney Princesses reimagined as a group of dangerous and sexy warriors, complete with armor and weapons.
“I’ve always been involved in design, since going to art school after high school. I’ve always been into comics. When I was younger I would draw comics just for fun,” Roshuk told theVAULTmagazine in a phone interview. “A couple of years ago, I had the idea I wanted to start a comic book. I had an idea and story in mind. I got into photography, and I got the idea; why don’t I make a comic using real models, combining them with illustration? No one has really done that before.” His biggest influence was his older brother’s Heavy Metal magazines, which Roshuk says he started reading at the tender age of seven.
