Ideas I've been sketching for a T-shirt design for my daughter. The official Disney princess merchandise T-shirts always irk me a little because they're impossible to find with a decent layout of ALL of the princesses (10 currently official ones + Merida who will be made official in the summer according to latest info from Disney). Yes I realise it's down to Disney being a large company that wants to use people as their billboards and hence it's easier just to print 1-4 princesses on a shirt so they are bigger and you can see the brand from further away. But jfc it's always the same few on the front and then if you're lucky you get Tiana or Mulan stuffed in the back so you see their heads. Also they bother me because you only ever see the ladies in their ballgowns/fancy dresses (except Pocahontas/Merida) so I'm toying with the idea of making her a shirt with plain dress princesses. Mostly because I'd like to try bring out the actually valuable princess traits like kindness, patience, perseverance, courage, thirst for knowledge etc. and not just glamorise their shiny sparkly ballgowns and wealth. If I want her a shirt with sparkly princesses I can just buy one from a shop already so that's not what I'd want to do.
So hm idk... messing with a puzzle layout and kicking myself for forgetting little forest animals that I could had thrown in the garnishing mix around the edges. I think I'll let these simmer at the back of my mind for a few weeks and see what happens.
