David Gilson is a French Artist. In 2007, over being excited for Disney’s Black Princess, he created a plethora of wonderful artwork in anticipation. 

Many of them created during earliest production in which the film was then titled The Frog Princess and the heroine was named Maddy the chambermaid. These works since have been passed around as if they were conceptual artwork during production. In part for being well done and existing a year prior to any real art released to the press and public. 

As The Princess and The Frog hops towards five years since theatrical release, it it time to identify these great works of art as they are, fan art.

The right column showcases the beautiful pieces by Disney Artists. David Gilson’s fan artwork is used often when talking about natural hair for Tiana. Lorelay Bové, Sue Nichols, Chris Appelhans, Armand Baltazar and Kevin Gollaher have drawn natural hair in their concept art and unfortunately that aspect did not make it to realization.

David was contracted by Disney Publishing and Disney Consumer Products for Tangled in 2010. Hey, who knows maybe all the attention to his Tiana art landed him the job. We wish him the best in all his artistic endeavors!

Jews ordered to register in east Ukraine



Don’t fucking ignore this. Signal boost the hell out of it.

Ukrainian Jews have literally been ordered to register as Jews, including providing a list of all of their property and paying a fee, or be forced out of the country.

Hmm…this sounds awfully familiar…I fucking wonder why.

Jesus fucking Christ this is terrifying.

There certainly are a lot of calls for realism in Smash Brothers, when the series is known for the opposite. "Heels aren't good for fighting?" Well neither is being a fatass penguin wielding a cartoon mallet, or a yoga instructor. I'm not sure why this is a sole point of contention. High-heeled footwear isn't something that sprang from Don Draper's head in order to be more efficiently chauvinistic. Go look up the history of it and you'll find knights fought with raised heels all the time.

Neither is a full-length ballgown, which both Zelda and Peach wear.
