I’m excited to finally share what I did for the current Guzu Gallery show here in Austin!
The show is all about cartoons and animation and I just HAD to do something from my favorite Disney song (any maybe favorite Disney movie), Hercules. Hercules is incredibly underrated as far as I’m concerned!
get to know me meme: 2/10 favorite animated films → hercules (1997) “I trained all those would-be heroes. Odysseus, Perseus, Theseus. Alotayusses! And every one of those bums let me down flatter than a discus. None of them could go the distance. And then, there was Achilles. Now there was a guy who had it all: the build, the foot-speed. He could jab! He could take a hit! He could keep on comin’! BUT THAT FORSLUGGINER HEEL OF HIS! He barely gets nicked there once, and kaboom! He’s history. Yeah, I had a dream once. I dreamed I would train the greatest hero there ever was. So great, the gods would hang a picture of him in the stars for everyone to see. And everyone would say, ‘That’s Phil’s boy.’ That’s right… Ah, but dreams are for rookies.”
“They wouldn’t let me audition for Meg because I was Belle [in the Broadway production]. And they’re like, ‘You’re not right for Meg at all.’ So I just kept begging and begging and begging. Literally, to shut me up, they let me go in and audition.”
– Susan Egan, the voice of Megara in Disney’s Hercules
