These have been fun to make! I just really love all the sketches. Source leads back to the artist’s blog.
I rarely reblog. But, since it’s my own art , I thought I’d make an exception. A collage of some of my recent sketches. Now, with added backgrounds! :) fun! :)

Just For Fun - Ariel (C)DISNEY
In some non-Disney related news, my other passion outside of drawing, trapeze! The top photo is of me (after work of course). The following images are paintings of myself on both the trapeze and aerial silks done by Ignat Ignatov . Ignat had asked if my husband and I would model for him so he could do some figure studies. Being a big fan of his work, how could you say no to that? As it happened, we had already planned to be in Provincetown when the Egeli Gallery was setting up the show. This promptly lead to some partner balancing in the gallery, just for fun. And, now you know.

Sometimes when I doodle I have a “go to” pose that I enjoy drawing. This one seems to be a favorite of mine. Similar pose, different character. A change of hair style, hand gesture and clothes make the whole thing seem new again. A perfect “princess pose”. It often happens when I’m not thinking about it, as if a character is just stopping by to say hello. And, it always brings a smile to my face.
20 years ago when I first started working at Disney, Pocahontas was the first character I ever officially worked on. Even though it was a LONG time ago, I still find myself doodling her when my mind wanders. Sometimes a year may pass before she shows up on my paper. But, I still feel like that kid walking through the doors of Disney 20 years later. Hello again, Pocahontas. It’s been a while. :)
The top photo is how my day started. Lots of drawing still to do and only pencil stubs left to draw with. :(
Then I started to clean up my desk and found a whole stash of new pencils. :)
Lots to get done! Happy Friday.
This is “Terrible Ariel”. And, this is a link to the Terrible Ariel tumblr.
It’s a gallery of illustrations inspired by a knockoff Little Mermaid coin bank purchased at a Mexican grocery store.
You can submit your own images based on this amazing find.
Since it was a really busy day at work I only had a minute (literally) to do my own. A brief moment of inspiration from my new muse, Terrible Ariel.
Here she is! LOL
Throwback Thursday - Lunchtime doodles
Images from one of the very first posts I did on my tumblr a little over two years ago. As you can see I play around with different styles and tend to doodle on my lunch hour. Lately I’ve been in a real cartoony mode. ;) Thought I might post some old stuff now and again for all my new followers. Welcome, and enjoy!
Just For Fun - Lunchtime Doodle - Jasmine (C)DISNEY
Last night I was sent a photo of a tattoo that a fan of my work recently had done. They really liked the work I did on Tinker Bell for the Disney Store Animator’s Collection doll. Maybe there are more tattoo’s out there of work that I’ve done, but this is the first one I’ve seen. Crazy, and awesome at the same time!
