"Rapunzel" 

When I first saw these gender-swapped illustrations of some of my favorite fairy tales, I had to laugh. I love the little faces of these dudes! Artist Yudi Chen, who studies illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, flips the gender roles of beloved fairy tales such as Rapunzel and Cinderella (Cinderfella, if you will) in her illustration series Gender Reversed Fairy Tales. I think my favorite is the bearded Rapunzel-- dude has some sweet pink facial hair.

"Sleeping Beauty"

"Cinderfella"

"Tarzana and John"

If you like the series, you can purchase prints over on Chen’s Society6 shop, and be sure to check out her website, where you can find more of her illustrations and other projects.
