A few of us at work have started “DECEMMER,” (where we draw mermaids for the month of December)…so recently I’ve started doing a series of sketchbook comics about different kinds of merpeople. Here is the first one, about the Mermit-Crab.

I am thinking that racebentdisney should be on your radar.
And this piece by Sam Schecter? AMAZE.
First of a three-part series of spreads of my take on Rapunzel set in India. The book is geared toward a younger audience so I went with younger protagonists as well!
Omg I love
Not a direct adaptation of Tangled, but what a beautiful illustration!

I did a ton of illustrations for the recent middle-grade novel, Scare Scape, by Sam Fisher. It’s a really fun book that reminded me a lot of the stuff I would’ve been really into in late elementary school, like Goosebumps, Spooksville, etc. Lots of fun monsters. Doing the huge cover was a, shall we say, harrowing experience.
I think there are about twenty of these black and white drawings in the book, that accompany a little Monster-Manual-ish description. I really like working in black and white.
You can check the book out on Amazon.

The glorious work of Tyrus Wong is unparalleled. It was his lush pastels that served as the driving force behind Bambi, where he was the lead artist on the film. Prior to Wong’s contributions, the logistics of managing the detailed nuance of a forest setting (millions of leaves!) was posing a problem, but Wong’s gorgeous, inventive minimalist approach was the perfect solution and provides the film its unique style and warm, textured feel.
