On his artwork, in which we see the likes of Cinderella fighting with Prince Charming as he’s more interested in his phone, Princess Jasmine doing housework while Aladdin plays video games and Alice in Wonderland ditching her oversized food for a small salad, Tom says he wanted to bring to life ‘the times we live in and communicate topical issues in a relatable way’.
