I work at a daycare...so you can bet a large part of everything I hear about and see in a day concerns princesses. Namely, Disney Princesses. This elite group of sparkly, petty-coated royal ladies that you see printed on everything a little girl wants. From school bags to pajamas...I think I even saw tooth paste once...and cereals.
I admit, I'm a bit sick of that lot. A case of way too much exposure.
But I'm also a benevolent, saintly woman, and when the kids ask me for a princess drawing to color, I most of the time oblige. I haven't kept a count of how many Belle, Ariel and Jasmine I drew this year. It's probably a crazy number I better not think about.
So one of those times where I drew my 2854th Little Mermaid, I wondered what it would look like if I took more time to draw her. As an actual portrait. So that's what I did. I sat around the table with the kids and just did it.
And it was FUN.
And now I want to do this with every Disney Princess. I'm hooked.
So here's Ariel, because I need to show off a bit to other people then four years old.
I'm working on Jasmine these days....Jasmine's kinda cool.
