Moana was love at the first sight, since the first concept i saw of her. Btw i could never imagine how much i’d love these two. Now that their journey is finished, i feel a bit empty I hope you will like my little tribute :3
This is an illustration I did for Patrick Ballesteros’ “Sweethearts, BFFs, and Bromances” show at The Perky Nerd in Burbank, CA.
It is my tribute to one of comics’ favorite duos brought to movie life- Rocket Raccoon and Groot! I’ve always liked their polar opposite personalities, and I really want to capture the 80’s-90’s charm of the Guardians of the Galaxy. My thought was, “what could be better than the cheesy photo shoot backdrops?” Nothing, obviously! Hope you all enjoy this!
If it gets a good response, I’ll set aside time to celebrate the soon-to-be new freakin’ Guardians in a similar fashion!
CTN and DesignerCon are upon us next weekend! Here’s a preview of my piece for Gallery Nucleus’s Art Tribute to the Disney Films of Ron Clements and John Musker NEXT SATURDAY! I’ll be there so feel free to come say hi or even snag my signed and framed Treasure Planet print! It’s going to be a great night!
disney patting itself on the back for LGBTQ representation by confirming Lefou gay in canon (when he was already blatantly coded that way as a “butt of the joke”) is the grossest thing and it irritates me so much. And this isn’t gonna be a disney hate post cause as yall know I love disney so much and specifically beauty and the beast means the world to me which gives me 10x more reason to be angry about it. its just so disgustingly disrespectful that theyre acting high and mighty about making a queer-coded comic relief villian character literally named “the fool”“ gay, when keeping in mind that beauty and the beast was so heavily influenced by howard ashman and his experiences and would be not be the gorgeous classic we love if it wasnt for him. howard ashman was the amazing lyricist for the movie (as well as the little mermaid, aladdin…) and was also a gay man who died of AIDS. so it just makes me disgusted to see headlines referencing ashman about disneys ~first openly gay (side character~ like "The Touching Tribute Behind Disneys First Openly Gay Character!” and “Beauty and the Beast has First Openly Gay Character as Director Calls Story ‘a Metaphor for AIDS’. like its so annoying to see disney and others acting like they give a shit about AIDS and gay people like if you really cared why didnt you make the central story gay or at the very least non-villain characters like a gay lady piano or some crap I dont fucking know? my end point is that disney doesnt care about LGBTQ people other than them giving them money and to me its annoying at best and disrespectful to howard ashmans legacy to act like theyre being progressive with this story.
Since we’re nearing the end of Black History Month, I decided I would like to input my own thoughts about it. Now having seen a lot of other posts about this on Tumblr and other sites, I can’t really add anything much about people who were helpful in the Civil Rights Movement or in establishing equality for black people that hasn’t already been said, and I wouldn’t know how to talk about those types of things, anyway. But there is one thing I do know how to talk about, and that’s cartoons.
My piece for the art tribute to #liveaction #disney #beautyandthebeast show present by @ohmydisney @gallerynucleus @disneystudios @cyclopsprints . Show will be up from 3/11/17-4/2/17 Hope to see you there
A quick little tribute to ol’ Fordsy who appeared a year ago (09/03/15) in NWHS. That episode remained my favourite until the finale rolled around. Not only was it super exciting, but the Twin Theory turned out to be true. Also it was after this episode that I really joined the fandom.
Oh boy what is this trash! Sometimes you just gotta draw two of your favorite villain designs, but you can’t decide what so you default to angry unexpected cuddles. Speaking of unexpected, because of the new fabulous brushes, this only took roughly 5 hours to illustrate. It was very therapeutic and enjoyable. Character styles were heavily referenced from their respective movies. Lady Tremaine / Maleficent ⓒ Disney!
