I was watching the Princess and the Frog with my friend Surly Queen and Becca and we all agreed that somehow they made the rich best friend character not horrible. In fact, they made her pretty awesome even though she was bossy and spoiled. She was still wonderfully endearing.
Surly Queen scribbled the dancing frog and I have stolen it and inked it. I don’t think she had any intention of it seeing the light of day.
So many amazing costumes. The voodoo king, Ruby Rod, a whole team of Cobra Football players, Blogess, a Poison Ivy with a dead body under her bustle, a Klingon in Storm Trooper armor, a Iron Man victorian dress, and two army guys who’s camouflage matched the Marriott carpet.
I always get the feeling that behind these elegant, noble women there’s something sinister. Each time I draw a lady in elaborate garb I just can’t help but add a little dash of “uh oh”. Almost without my knowing, a dash of red bleeds through the embroidered skirt or in this case, sharp claws peak out from velvet cuffs. Almost as if a woman who is this meticulously put together would eat you alive without getting a single spot on her gown.

I don’t really know if my princess is talking about finally getting a sparkly ring or the boy that comes with it, but I couldn’t stop looking at it for days. Ring or boy.
even now….soooo sparkly.
