I haven't been drawing in a while, so the best thing to get me back into it is something super-girly-sugary-sweet. So, inspired by a Mary Blair-ish Cinderella book I've had since I was a kid (and in really bad condition, a testament to how many times I'd poured over it) I decided to do my own version of the Cinderella portrayed in the book. I remember being disappointed by the movie version of her mouse-made dress as a kid because it was pink, while the one in the book was yellow. Plus she had lime green shoes in the book. How awesome of a combination is that? If you're a fan of Mary Blair you should pick up this book, it's available at Powell's :

Hopefully the color version won't be as much of a struggle as it usually is.
