Illustration for University College Falmouth's annual Illustrated Quotes and Sayings book. This is inspired by what Walt Disney said once upon a time: "There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on treasure island". I wanted to do something about pirates to honour the time that I've spent in the pirate land of Cornwall and at first I didn't actually realise who had come up with such a fitting sentence until I had pretty much finished the artwork. When I did I actually wooped, because I'm a true Disney girl at heart. They are the films I grew up with, I know pretty much all the songs (in both norwegian and english!) and I'm pretty close to completing my collection of dvd's! No matter what the critics say I will always stand by Disney for creating fantastic animations with characters, songs and stories that warm my heart every time!  x

  1. Hi I am a sixth grade teacher and I am trying to inspire my students to read. I wanted to make a poster with the Walt Disney quote you mentioned above, because my classroom is pirate themed. I found your painting on a google search and gives just the right feeling I would like to create for books in my classroom and it looks so beautiful. I would love to put the quote onto a copy of your painting and make it a poster, giving credit where it is due, of course. I was wondering if there is any way I could do that. Please let me know by emailing me or posting below. Thanks!
