A few years ago I got news that a someone I knew was expecting a baby! So, I did a little drawing for them. I wasn’t quite sure at first what to draw. But seeing as they were having a baby girl, and I draw princesses for a living (hence the request), princesses it was! My favorite part of the drawing has to be the baby. It’s funny what will come out on paper when you really aren’t trying. Made up of just a few simple lines, you can still capture all the emotion of a new born. I love drawing.
Throwback Thursday! Back in 2010 I was asked to do a special gift for Naomi Campbell by one of her closest friends for her 40th birthday. “OF COURSE !”, I said. After all who doesn’t love Naomi Campbell? Naomi is a Disney fan as well, so I was given the creative direction to create a magazine cover featuring Naomi and some Disney girls. This is what I came up with. A throw back to the glamour days of the 90’s Supermodels. No one else but Naomi should be in the middle anyway. I later received the sweetest thank you note from Naomi herself. It’s currently framed in my home office.
I usually never re-blog anything. But since I did the original art for these dolls, I felt it’s alright. I love how this person put together the art I created for the “Disney Princess Designer Collection” and turned it into this great poster. I had a blast doing the original artwork. And, I love that it still pops up now and then. Like an old friend.
Jasmine - Artist Series Two. Disney Stores. Steve Thompson.
Finishing my post on the “Wish A Littles” I had worked on for the Disney Stores, I present the whole collection! :) Read more about all “the girls” in the link.
As you know, I love working on the princesses. This year for the “Sketchbook Ornament" collection I have updated 8 of our favorite girls in these cute winter dresses. I love how they turned out.
See these and all the other winter princess sketchbook ornaments I designed here! :)
Today at the Disney Stores and online is the release of “Artist Series Two”. Once again I am proud to have artwork I created especially for this release, along with artwork from a few other very talented designers. Included in the notecard set is my art of Jasmine from the Disney film, “Aladdin”. Very much in the same style as the last series where I did artwork of Ariel from “The Little Mermaid”, I wanted to draw her in my style, but capture Jasmine’s essence. Here you see not only the original pencil sketch, but also the final color and how it appears on product. enjoy!
D23 sneak peak! Do you spot my Jasmine art?
Going into the way back files, more unused ”Art of the Disney Princess" artwork. There were a few pieces I had worked on that were never finished in time to submit for publication along with the pieces I did for that book. It’s a shame , as I really liked the direction they were headed. Ariel and Jasmine made it to tight pencil , but never to color. They almost made it onto the "Charming Collection" packaging I referenced in my last post. Unfortunately the collection that was to include these girls never came to be. So, back in the bin they went. After many years, here they are. Enjoy. :)
