Yup, the familiar Disney characters look as cool as ice!

If you’ve wondered how well the Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock print art style might mix with characters from Disney’s Frozen, then talented Singaporean artist William Chua has provided the answer!

Chua,who also goes by the name xiaobaosg, has produced numerous works of art with various themes, some of which we’ve introduced on our site before, including his adorable Samurai Cat illustrations and ukiyo-e versions of 80s video game characters

Now, Chua has created a brilliant ukiyo-e style rendition of Frozen’s Elsa and Olaf, and we have to say they look awfully cool! 

▼ Here’s “The Ice Queen” in all her snowy glory, with Olaf, of course!

We love the beautiful snowflake prints on Elsa’s kimono and also how the castle in the background is done in a Japanese style!

Chua has also created Japanese manga/anime inspired art, like this illustration featuring the Straw Hat Pirate’s ship from One Piece.

▼ The work, depicting the Thousand Sunny pirate ship also in ukiyo-e style, is titled “One Piece of Dream“.

▼ And this piece, titled “Pizza to Disc, artfully combines Krilin’s move from Dragon Ball Z with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

▼Chua has also portrayed American superhero characters as well, as seen in this piece, “The Civil War“, which draws inspiration from Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.

▼ The characters done in ukiyo-e style wearing Japanese-style armor look awesome! Here’s a close-up of Iron Man …

▼… and Captain America, still wearing his signature mask.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this look at characters from various franchises in a unique and original style. We’d love to see Chua bring many more characters to life, whether in ukiyo-e designs, or something all together different. If you’re interested, you can check out more of Chua’s work on his website or his online shop. Have fun seeing if you can find your favorite characters!
