Taking Disney’s iconic maid from The Haunted Mansion and turning her into a pinup model, we’re sharing new photography artwork you’re just dying to see.
It’s called Master Gracey’s Maid Service, inspired by and based on artwork by DJ Clulow. (More on his original below!)
Photographer: Ricky Brigante
Model: Autumn Holiday
Makeup and Hair Styling: Adrienne Star

Inspired by his work and with his permission, I have recreated it as a photograph.
Prints of his original artwork are also available via Clulow’s Etsy store.
