My copy of the Disney Princess 2022 calendar from Grupo Erik finally arrived ❤
Since I couldn't choose between this one and the Frozen 2022 calendar (also from Grupo Erik), I decided to get both! This one took a little longer to arrive but it was worth it. As I've mentioned in several posts earlier this year, I love the new marketing style Disney has been using for the princesses, putting them in more dynamic poses and actually interacting with each other. The art in this calendar is gorgeous, so of course I wanted to make HD scans. You can find scans of all the calendar pages, as well as the pull-out poster, below.
Like my other calendar scans, the pages for these are slightly cropped since they're larger than my scanner, but I did my best to keep the main part of each picture intact. I also tried to clean up any cut-off text or other blemishes as much as I could. Enjoy! As always, feel free to use the images as you like, but giving me credit would be nice ;)

I’ve been wanting to do some Monsters and Princesses work for a while, and there’s no better time than the spooky season!
Snow White has long been a favorite of mine, with her effortlessly cheerful and resilient nature, that ability to laugh at herself for crying over being kicked out of her home and nearly murdered. That’s a gal who can handle herself.
I saw the original Nosferatu for the first time ever recently and it is some wild and creepy stuff. I especially love that the cabbie driving our hero to Nosferatu’s castle is none other than… Nosferatu. Maybe it’s just a whole town of them.

I have been interested in historical fashion for quite some time, and have been watching youtubers who explain ways that modern media oversimplifies, modernizes and wrongly portrays fashion styles from different era, destroys their silhouette for the sake of pandering to modern views of beautifulness. The first thing that I thought of were Disney Princesses whose styles were pretty, but also very questionable when it comes to accurate presentation of the era they lived in. Of course, this simplification could be because the designs were made to appeal more towards what children would see as memorable, tho I have to say that I thought that original Disney princesses designs were accurate for embarrassingly long time.

I feel like people don't talk enough about how insane the ending of Kung Fu Panda is.
(alternate title:, "One of the many reasons why I LOVE Kung Fu Panda")
There's an almost-universal truism in kids' movies that the hero can't kill anyone. Not even the Big Bad, no matter how warranted it is in the moment or how much the audience wants it. You simply can't do that. Heroes don't kill.
There are exceptions, but this truism is especially universal in the studio that's practically synonymous with kids' films: Disney.
That's why so many Disney villains end up accidentally killing themselves. Usually by falling off of something:
I can only think of four heroes in the entire Disney catalog that deliberately, intentionally choose to kill a sapient, intelligent villain, and all of them were self-defensive and in the heat of the moment, where sparing the villain wasn't an option:
(Note: I have seen most Disney movies, but not all of them)
....and then Dreamworks came along, said "fuck that," and had their goofy, lovable Jack Black character ice a motherfucker just 'cause.
Po has already completely won the fight. The day has been saved. He has Tai Lung at his mercy.
And Po's not even reluctant about it. There's no burden of responsibility. They didn't just have Po kill, they had him enjoy it because his method of murder is so wicked cool.
Po is a hero in a kids' movie who not only kills his villain, but fucking executes him. All with that signature Dreamworks smile on his face:
I have gazed into the abyss, and the abyss said "skadoosh."
