Happy 23rd Birthday The Little Mermaid ♥


Glen Keane animating Ariel last week.

“Here’s a drawing that (animator) Shawn Keller did of Ursula at Christmas of ‘88. To this day, I’m still not sure what this drawing is about. Shawn just liked the idea of Ursula using her stomach as a bass drum…Bowmp, bowmp, bowmp! Shawn even asked Glen Keane to do one of Ariel doing the same thing. Glen obliged.” - Nik Ranieri

I went to the First 10+ art show on thursday then stopped by the gallery again on Saturday and Glen Keane was there! I just asked for his autograph and he sketched Ariel for me!!! ahhh he looked through my sketchbook and told me to keep on drawing! so excited!! 

I was stupid nervous the entire time! Its so awesome to meet someone who really helped shape who you are today!

I’ll keep on drawing and one day I can hopefully have the same kind of impact on someone that he’s had on me! 


Glen Keane’s girls, aren’t they just lovely?
