Until His Twenty-First Yearby PencilBones
ABOUT THE ART
Beauty & The Beast was my favorite story as a child. Quite possibly still is now that I'm an adult.
My favorite story book has always been BEAUTY and the BEAST by Jeanne Marie LePrince de Beaumont and illustrated by Hilary Knight. After being so familiar with this book the Disney movie was ALMOST a disappointment but I fully came to love it as well if not in a different manner.
I pulled a few of my favorite elements from both versions and through in my own vision of the Beast...
Love that transcends appearances, love that overcomes even the most beastly of curses. That is a love that I hope will never become simple myth.
