Yellow Inked Mickey Mouse

Taking pop culture icons like Mickey Mouse and Pluto and reconstructing them with a zany colour palette and a surreal twist, is what Warsaw-based illustrator Tomek Płonka does so well. The contrast he achieves in his art between colour and black and white is beautiful. His characters are nightmarish visions of traditional subject matters, as we see human portraits distorted with tree trunks and branches knotted into fantastical shapes.
