Here’s another piece I did for my gallery show at Hashtag, Mulan this time. Here’s the writeup I did for her:
Mulan is from the Chinese fable of the same name, adapted by Disney in 1998 to wide acclaim and success. She proactively begins her own story by disguising herself as a male warrior, in order to protect her father from certain death in a war. She’s also one of the only Disney “princesses” who doesn’t get married off at the end of her first movie.
