With the premier of Tangled the Series closing in fast on March 10th all the power of the Disney Marketing Machine is set to help get the word out!  I thought it would be fun to share the final poster I designed as well as some of my early concepts that got us there.  Mad love to Alan Bodner, Chris Tsirgiotis, Laura Price, and Holly Almaguer for their skills with the color, clean up and background design!

So, it hasn’t occurred to me that other autistic people might not know this, so I figured I’d make a post.

Shopping channel stuff.

If there’s household stuff that you struggle with, for whatever reason, you should probably check out the shopping channels.

A lot of the stuff advertised on those channels is designed for various disabilities, it’s just not advertised as such.

Like, I can’t really use sharp knives for cooking. I don’t have the fine motor skills to use them safely.

But my mum bought a Nicer Dicer from the shopping channel, and it completely removes any danger for me.

Of course, it pretty much can’t be hand-washed, and it’s big, so it’s a pain in the dishwasher, but if I can’t get pre-sliced veg, it’s great.

She just bought a new hoover as well that’s a lot more light-weight and maneuverable than the Dyson one we’ve got, and I can finally actually use it with my dyspraxic arms.

Plus it’s quieter, so my headphones block the noise better.

So, yeah, if there’s any household jobs that you really struggle with, there’s probably a shopping channel solution.

Another new short is out! This one has a lot of fun cameos I got to work with including the mars and beyond robot. I’ll post designs soon! I know I’m behind.

Rapunzel
I did this as a exercise to see how I would have designed Rapunzel for the new tv series, it’s just my take on it.
I really adore the style the tv show has taken, I just wanted to play around.

Sorry! I’ve been so busy with work that I haven’t touched my tumblr! Here’s Mickey and Minnie designs of them being cute from “Sock Burglar.” I’m not sure where the color versions are but here are my clean ups.
