Gilbert Blythe wasn’t used to putting himself out to make a girl look at him and meeting with failure. She SHOULD look at him, that red-haired Shirley girl with the little-pointed chin and the big eyes that weren’t like the eyes of any other girl in Avonlea school. Gilbert reached across the aisle, picked up the end of Anne’s long red braid, held it out at arm’s length and said in a piercing whisper: “Carrots! Carrots!” Then Anne looked at him with a vengeance! She did more than look. She sprang to her feet, her bright fancies fallen into cureless ruin. She flashed one indignant glance at Gilbert from eyes whose angry sparkle was swiftly quenched in equally angry tears. “You mean, hateful boy!” she exclaimed passionately. “How dare you!” And then—thwack! Anne had brought her slate down on Gilbert’s head and cracked it—slate not head—clear across. - Chapter 15 - A Tempest in the School Teapot

Hello!!! I’ve been away for quite some time lmao well im on my final year of uni atm so everything is crasy cheeseballs ; ngl i miss goofing around drawing the things i love but my health’s been going south lately and my homework keeps gettin pilled up so it might take a longer while before i can share my doodles again;;;; ;; ;
also P5 is just like me extending the borrowing period of library books that i havent got around to finish reading
Into the Forest is based on a book that I read years ago that we decided to make. That was an example of a movie where I decided I really wanted a woman to write and direct this. It’s about sisters and female perspective. Tallulah was just an incredible script. Sian is super talented. I do want more women behind the camera; yeah. We should be trying to make that happen, but it happens organically, too.

Just for fun, I wanted to draw some female Disney characters(from cartoon series) that were either the main characters of their own show(whether it’s named after them, or it focus’ around them), or shared the equal amount of screen time as the male main characters/had their own episode.
Maggie Pesky - The Buzz On Maggie(Main Character)
Kim Possible (Main Character)
Star Butterfly - Star VS The Forces Of Evil(Main Character)
Penny Proud - The Proud Family(She’s part of the Proud family so that makes her a Main Character)
Pepper Ann (Main Character)
Lilo Pelekai - Lilo and Stitch(Main Character)
Brandy - Brandy and Mr. Whiskers(Main Character)
Riley Eugene Daring- The Replacements(Sister of the Main Character/Main Character)
Ariel - The Little Mermaid(Main Character)
Sabrina Spellman - Sabrina The Animated Series(Main Character)
Mabel Pines - Gravity Falls(Sister of Main Character/Main Character)
Candace Flynn - Phineas and Ferb(Sister of Main Characters)
Sashi Kobayashi - Penn Zero: Part Time Hero(Friend of Main Character)
Bea Goldfishberg - Fish Hooks(Friend of Main Characters/Main Character)
Sylvia - Wander Over Yonder(Friend of Main Character)
If I left out any other show that has a main Disney female character or a female character who shares the same equal amount of screen time as the male main character; feel free to share nicely.
