Cartoon Saloon’s The Secret of Kells was first released on February 11, 2009.

Development on the film began in 1999 when director Tomm Moore and some of his friends first saw Richard Williams’s The Princess and the Cobbler (1993) and Disney’s Mulan (1998). The stylings of those two films - Persia for The Princess and the Cobbler (1993) and China for Mulan (1998) - inspired Moore to make a similarly styled film based on Irish art. (x)

Hi ! Just passing by to say that I really love your art, and I really enjoy all your work ! Just a question : do you have any inspiration, related to the drawing/paiting style you use today ?

Hi! Thank you so much for your kindness and for the question!

It’s taken me a bit to answer this because a) I’ve been really slammed with work and b) I wanted to REALLY think about this and give it a solid answer. 

This answer might be long and have lots of visuals… so I’ll keep it behind the cut.

Old Hollywood; New hollywood. These are some of the femme fatales, in my eyes, and ‘celebrities’ that I respect and somewhat ‘look up’ to.
