This has been my most-requested fairy tale poster, and it took a few months for me to decide on a look I wanted. It really came together once I sketched the Beast with that very Sendak-ian look! I hope people like my sassy Beauty and distressed Beast. I set it in a library as a nod to teh Disney film, and hand-lettered the text.
You can buy a poster on my etsy—or come to Kumoricon and buy one in person!
Beauty and the Beast set in the 20’s.
A Detective is cursed to become a beast by a Fortune teller who saw no love in his arrogant heart for others. The only way he can break the spell is to learn to love another and earn her love in return before his transformation completes. Beast takes refuge in an old inn at a grungy sea port. There he hires lackeys to bring forth to him beautiful woman to help break his spell. Beauty, a beautiful young flapper girl is brought to Beast and he truly believes she is the one but Beauty views him as nothing more than a monster as he views her as difficult and stubborn. But soon Beasts life is threatened when rumors hit the streets of him being a monster, stealing girls and eating people in their sleep. Beauty is forced to help him but the two soon become much better acquainted during their escapade. (totally ripped this off from the disney movie summary but HAHA you get the point. Be sure to check back at my Character Blog for upcoming sketches of these two.)
