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!

I’ve been slaving away long days and endless nights on this portrait series and today I finally get to debut my hard work. In fact, I am going to open a gallery show this summer containing works like this which I expect you all to attend. For now, though, prints of my crowning achievement are available in my sexy new shop (my old shop couldn’t handle it.) If you don’t buy the entire set I can only assume you don’t appreciate true beauty.

"Maybe it’s on Goofy’s keychain!"

Street harassment is not a compliment.
This! There is a HUGE difference between a genuine compliment and the shit idiots say to you in the street.
