I am so excited about this Art Collaboration … 15 Artists – each of them picked their favourite Disney Princess – and created a Piece of Art inspired by it. Fun Twist to the Challenge – it’s supposed to be a “Big Eye” Girl … (read more about the Big Eye Art Movement, which started wayyy back in the 60s of the last Century with Margaret Keane here).
To be really really honest with you – when I got asked a couple of weeks ago if I want to be part of this Collaboration I wasn’t 100% sure in the beginning … Disney Princess … not really “my thing” … there are amazing, talented people out there creating Disney “Fan Art” – but it’s just not “me” … you know? I love to watch Disney Movies – but creating “Disney Style” … just not me … But then I thought it would be a great Challenge … to make her my own – like a crossover between my own style of Girls and the original Disney Character … why not? Keep trying new, different things … right? So I accepted and I’m so glad I did … not only was the Conversation with all the other Artists over the past Weeks so much fun – but I actually looked closer at what “my thing” and “my style” really is … what stylistic Elements do I use to make drawings & paintings “my own”? It was a fun, interesting and inspiring Journey …
So – I picked Jasmine from the Movie Aladdin – I really like her – she’s not that typical “girly girl” Disney Princess wearing that fluffy pink dress and sportin’ yallow-blonde hair and a sparkling Tiara (nothing agains that – but I prefer the “modern” Disney Characters) – she has attitude – I really like that … (plus I thought it would be so fun to paint her hair *lol*) … I would have loved to create a Merida as well (just think of that fun fun fun red curly hair) – but she was picked by another artist already … but I was super-happy with Jasmine too …
So here’s my Interpretation of Jasmine … Cre8tive Cre8tions Style … with Watercolor, lots of Glitter (hey – you gotta be a little “girly” at least – right?) and Texture … I really love how she turned out – that you can still see at the first sight that she’s inspired by Disney’s Jasmine, yet I gave her my own personal touch & style … I made her my own … and I had so so so much fun along the way – who would have thought?
