It’s time to kick off this very crazy week of big announcements and hullabaloo! And what better way to do that than with the following:
I HAVE A BOOK IT EXISTS.
So…that Maleficent movie with Angelina Jolie with the neato Lana Del Ray trailers? I’m so blessed to announce that I’ve Illustrated the accompanying YA novelization “The Curse of Maleficent" that will be out in stores via Disney Press at the end of this month! (and available for pre-order on Amazon now! here!)
The cover has been unembargo’d and I thought you might like get a first look at one of the biggest things I’ve been working on in the last few months. Truly a moment to thank God and give him the glory for turning these last 2 years around from devastation to triumph. God is good, guys- and this book was such a blessing.
Anyways, I’m pumped and I hope you will order and enjoy- there are 25 (ish) interior illustrations that I’ll be able to share some of with you guys as the month unfolds. For now: WOO! DISNEY!
that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.
but OP how could you not tell them the best part
“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”
Happy National Women’s Day! (A woman can preach, a woman can work, a woman can fight. A woman can build, can rule, can conquer, can destroy just as much as a man can.) [sorry if your favorites are not included, I was going mainly for human women, or human-like women. So, no animals in this set. Also there is over 30 gifs. I couldn’t fit them all anyways.]
dear tumblr what do all of these characters have in common (besides all being disney characters obviously)
they were all designed by glen keane
so please stop saying glen keane only has one ‘style’ or he only draws the same thing over and over again
he doesn’t. he’s one of the most talented animators and character designers of our generation. please get your facts straight.
if you’re angry about the frozen girl looking like rapunzel, that’s legit! but probably not glen keane’s fault, unless he’s said something in interviews i’ve totally missed. but it’s important to note that glen keane has actually left disney, and probably because he wants to do his own thing without having to listen to their demands anymore. look at his past body of work, hugely varied and creative, compared with disney’s more recent, less creative attempts. it’s not hard to make a wild guess at why he’s left.
so stop blaming glen keane for disney’s creative blue balls.
Are people really saying that about my dear Art God Glen Keane? :c Well, I for one never doubted his genius and strokes. And I agree on the fact that he was probably asked to draw the same cute lady faces for Disney. In fact, he mentioned how close of a resemblance some were when designing Pocahontas, and that Pocahontas’ face design was quite the opposite from the usual “Disney faces”. He was aware of what was going on, most likely.
But never doubt his genius and beautiful, oh so beautiful, strokes.
