What if Cinderella was Cinderfella, and Tarzan and Jane were Tarzana and John? Subverting the traditional gender roles of classic Grimm's Borthers tales, artist Yudi Chen turned classic children's stories on their head in with a viral illustration series of "genderswapped fairy tales."

Chen, a senior illustration student at Rhode Island School of Design with a focus on silkscreen and animation work, posted the illustrations to her Tumblr, where they quickly went viral. Check out some our favorite images from the collection in the slideshow below. For more from Yudi, head over to her Tumblr and click here to order prints.
