Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite Fairy Tales, and last week I saw the French live action movie from 1946 for the first time! It’s so strange and beautiful. For those who enjoy black and white films and fairy tales I highly recommend it!
I couldn’t help but do a few storybook style Illustrations inspired by it.
today my friend in class calculated that Gaston eats 420 eggs a week (21900/year). She than went on to ask how Gaston affords that many eggs if he lives in a “poor, provincial town.” I said that Gaston probably has 5 dozen chickens and that LeFou takes care of them all like their his children and each morning he wakes up at 4:00 am to collect 60 eggs for Gaston.
