Journey Log 7 Kylee Keenan

Last week, I drew an image of the famous drag queen, Divine, who played an important role in the creation of Ursula from The Little Mermaid. This week, I chose to construct an image of the way in which Ursula was originally depicted in Hans Christian Andersen’s original The Little Mermaid. Unknown to many, throughout the years of her existence, Ursula has shifted in her appearance drastically. She was originally depicted as a snake-like figure in Andersen’s film (seen here), then later drawn as a Cecaelia in Disney’s version of the film. Unlike the Disney version of her character, she is not overweight and does not have tentacle as legs. She has a slim body type and long flowing hair, with the body of a snake/fish figure.
