Anna Belenkiy is a digital artist who has chosen a very creative way of illustrating her first pregnancy. Being inspired by the Disney characters that have been part of her life since childhood to childbirth Anna decided to include the adorable princesses to illustrate her stages of pregnancy.

“Mulan has taught me to never give up and Ariel taught me to keep chasing my dreams,” said the artist when reached out by Earthwonders.

Anna has been drawing her whole life, but became proficient in digital painting when she began her degree in animation 5 years ago. Her obsession with Disney princesses started at a very young age, when she first saw Ariel, who she says has been drawing her ever since.

“The idea for this series started when I got pregnant (this is my first pregnancy). Pregnancy has always been viewed as something glamorous and magical, especially when you look at other pregnant women and you want to be like them, but then reality came crashing down and I decided to use my beloved Disney princesses to document my least glamorous pregnancy moments,” shared the artist for Earthwonders.

‘Pregnancy glow’ is a term we’ve heard many times, but that’s not something all women experience. Some struggle more during this time, and we can fully say that this mom-to-be did a great job illustrating just that. We congratulate Anna on her baby, and wish her a lovely ride down this journey called motherhood.

“I imagined my pregnancy really gentle and magical , no one prepared me to the fact that I’m gonna be a huge gas balloon without any control over my gasses”

Well-thought Illustrations Presenting the Society Issues About Our Lives Today

Modernity has brought us a very hectic life. Everything is speeding and reaching beyond its limits. This indicates how we perceive our social issues. How we address them and what’s our relationship with them.

But one illustrator dared to speak about these issues, he creates illustrations out of pop culture, politics, mental issues, and many other topics that are often thought-provoking and bring new light to the perspective of how we perceive our world. The inspirations to draw something relatable, you got to see in almost all of his drawings.

In one of his interviews, the illustrator Stephan Schmitz stated that the main kick of his illustrations is the surprise and attention they transmit. He tries to achieve this by combining objects, symbols, or scenarios, by working with negative space, or by tinkering with the rules of perspective. In the best cases, the image produces an ‘AHA’ effect for the viewer

I think, once you’ve got someone’s attention through an image with this method, it will automatically make him/her think about the subject. Even if it is only for a couple of seconds.”

He loved drawing since he was a kid and always wanted to become a comic artist. But didn’t think of it professionally until he decided to learn illustration art in Switzerland. He also encourages young illustrators to start doing what they love and finds their style and voice through their work.
