What I Drew Sunday - September 25th

Here are the top 3 “liked” drawings from last Sunday’s session of “What Shall I Draw Today?”

#1 - Disney Villains/ Gotham: suggested by Lynn O’Connell Brandow

#2 - The Flash: suggested by sammi_samson

#3 - Mary Poppins and Bert: suggested by imangelothomas

And here is the whole Sunday set of sketches:


All these are going into my stock of original art for sale available at my next show, which may be next year’s Wonder Con at the end of March in Anaheim*, CA, unless a Christmas craft fair opportunity pops up before then.

* And I’m able to get a table of course.

THANK YOU to everybody who submitted topic suggestions. I received many more suggestions than I could draw in the 24 hours. If I didn’t get to yours, I may yet draw it to appear as one of my regular Instagram posts.

THANKS to everybody who voted with their “likes” on Instagram and Facebook and for following me at those social outlets.

In Disney’s telling of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale of “The Little Mermaid” King Triton is the undersea ruler of the mer-people and father of seven daughters. The youngest of these seven is Ariel, the hero of the story.

At this time, I only felt like (and had time for) coloring Attina.

Covering the Princess Racket


The morning of Saturday, August 27th, Disney unveiled through multiples of their Instagram feed a few pieces of custom Princess art in conjunction with this year’s U.S. Open Tennis Championships. It’s part of Disney’s “Dream Big, Princess” campaign.



For each of their eleven feature princesses a Disney artist painted a one of a kind depiction of the princess in an active, adventurous illustration.

For the one I did, I sought inspiration from the works of Mary Blair and Retta Scott, and depicted Snow White bounding in the company of some forest friends.
