Haunting Portraits Of Female Characters With Wide, Hypnotizing Eyes

Artist Mari Kim has created a captivating series of female characters from popular fairy tales and movies, all beautifully illustrated based on her original wide-eyed character, ‘Eyedoll’.

Her drawings, which bear a slight resemblance to goggly-eyed Blythe dolls, feature these popular female characters with dark, mysterious eyes that are fixed in a hypnotic gaze.

“I’m trying to confront the fixed ideas of felinity projected by mainstream media and contemporary culture... The eye is the wormhole connection inner life with the outside world,” said the Korean artist.

Take a look at Mari’s unique drawings below.
