Belle of Beauty and the Beast by Rebekah Isaacs
For “Women of Disney” Week at Ashcan All-Stars
Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel are just two examples of the amazing fairytales written by the Brothers Grimm. If it weren’t for them, Once Upon A Time perhaps wouldn’t exist, nor majority of the disney movies.
This is the best shit ever
They’re all dope, but….Son, that Jungle Book cover is CRAZY.
These posters are absolutely amazing. Snow White is genius. Love the crocodile aspect to the clock tower for PP. I NEED MORE ASAP.
Last of the deviantArt random requests, this one was for FeatherEyed. When I have lots of time after retirement in forty years I’ll do this idea as a full-on Where’s Waldo kind of page with Belle lost in the library but for now this was quite enough books to draw. :)

“The Fairy Godmother waved her hand and a mirror appeared. Cinderella gasped. There in the reflection - standing in the same disordered kitchen, among the drying laundry and dirty pots and pans - was the most beautiful princess she had ever seen. Could it really be her?”
Wandering the corridors of Tumblr, I’ve discovered that most of the Cinderella posts feature the Disney princess in various iterations, with her blonde up-do and big blue eyes. Red Riding Hood, in contrast, appears in many different guises. If Cinderella had never become a Disney film, would this character also possess more faces?
I do appreciate the beauty of the Disney version. She’s iconic and instantly recognizable. But at the same time, I wish that more artists like Kelley would share their own takes on Cinderella. Especially when I see this beautiful illustration.
Have you made or seen any unique interpretations of Cinderella? Let us know!
Reminds me of 20th Century Fox’s Anastasia. Her dress and crown at the end (I think. or her dress from her childhood/one of those Rasputin dreams.) and her hair too.
