“I used to be a big planner and had to have things figured out ahead of time, but I’m learning to love living in the moment. Last night, I called my friend up randomly and said, ‘Where are you? I want to come see you!’ It’s not a new version of me. I’m just embracing it more.”
Have we ever discussed the fact that 2001 - 2012 Disney channel’s shows all had strong female leads, with the exception of Zack and Cody but they had a black man in charge, a smart poor white blonde girl and a dumb rich Asian so still beautifully diverse.
Disney was 100% female empowerment and showed diversity. Who did they employ to create the shit they have today?
Of the shows with girls as leads, two of them were POC and their heritage was actively acknowledged throughout the show. We have a Wizards of Waverly Place episode featuring a quincenera and we have That’s So Raven, which actually did a lot to talk about body image and addressed the issue of antiblack racism.
Now there’s a stupid show with a dog that can talk.
I always wanted to illustrate Hazel and Gus’s dinner date, plus my degree in architecture is over and I now have too much free time on my hands, so not only did I do a triptych, but I also decided to animate them, cinemagraph-style. To see the still versions, go to mydeviantarthere.
P.S. This is my first time making gifs!
P.P.S. I’m thinking of taking the plunge and putting my prints up on Society6 or something, so I wonder if anyone’s interested? Of course, I’ll probably have to build up a sizeable amount of art first.
