To bring attention to disabled rights, an artist assigns disabilities and disorders to Disney Princesses.

We’re accustomed to seeing Disney princesses as flawless and gorgeous women, but Arien Smith wanted to make a message with them. The “Royal Service Dogs” series attempts to raise awareness about disability rights.

Arien is a mental health advocate who aims to raise awareness about service dogs’ importance. He gave each princess in the series a flaw and demonstrated how service dogs may help them cope. “Both a criticism of the paucity of disabled characters and support for disability rights,” the artist says of his work.

The disabled princesses with their service dogs can be seen in the gallery below.
