"Ariel Star" (aristar1.gif, 606x768x2, 8062 bytes) is the fifty-sixth in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]>. You may wish to save this description in a separate file for future reference.
There were two versions of the poster for "The Little Mermaid." One consists of bright, cheery kiddie art, full of characters, and is found on the video package. It's quite nice. However, what is arguably the more memorable poster artwork is that of Ariel sitting on a rock in the middle of the water, silhouetted against the full moon. This hauntingly beautiful artwork was based on the painting "Stars" by Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966). Here, Bob depicts another view of this cover artwork.
