News from the Kingdom!
Princess Odette had a "wild" time at Dream Night at Hogle Zoo this month! She spent time with children from five children's charities for children with terminal illnesses and severe special needs. They fed giraffes and rhinoceroses, watched a dog agility show, and had a wonderful time!
The Swan Princess attended the Salt Lake Animation Convention to showcase our hand drawn animation cels. A video was made to show the fascinating 2D animation process that created the original Swan Princess film and its first 2 sequels.
Tales of the Traveling Suit
Swan Princess Producer, Seldon Young is known far and wide for his Swan Princess argyle fashion. As he says "its wonderful to be proud enough of your work to wear it on your sleeve." He loves that the outfit choice has allowed him to have many fun experiences around the world with amazing Swan Princess fans!
One of Seldon's favorite travel destinations is Phuket, Thailand after experiencing the devastating tsunami in 2004 and participating in the relief efforts.
For one school, that was completely destroyed during the disaster, Seldon donated all new musical instruments, on behalf of The Swan Princess.
Seldon lovingly refers to them as "The Swan Princess Band" and had uniforms made for each member, from the Swan Princess argyle fabric.
You can watch the story unfold in the video below.
This month we're celebrating Bromely's birthday! This makes his astrological sign Cancer and his birthstone the ruby.
Cancer signs are very sensitive and sentimental. Their heart rules over their head. Better in small groups, Cancer signs are known for being fiercely loyal friends and for their quirky sense of humor.
Because they are so deeply feeling, large groups and stress can overwhelm cancer signs and make them moody and snappy. Because of their quick wit, however, those snappy moods are seen as funny by others who misinterpret their mood.
Cancer signs tend to be homebodies. They like their peaceful space where they can control what kind of energies enter into it.
Cancer signs are loyal to the core and will always show up for their friends and no matter what family comes first for them.
The ruby symbolizes nobility, purity, and passion. This passion is shown in their devotion to the friends and family they love so dearly.

This months question comes to us from a fan through email.
Question: Do you sell the painted backgrounds from The Swan Princess films or do you only sell the art cels and pencil sketches?
Answer: We do not sell the hand painted backgrounds from the films, although someday we may, it will likely be at auction.
While it takes thousands of cels to produce a feature film, there are fewer of the highly detailed masterpieces that make up the background.
One of the primary artists that created our backgrounds is Donald Towns, a highly talented classical painter.
We do have high quality scans of these beautiful pieces of art and prints of the coordinating background are sent with each animation cel sold to make the characters pop on the cel.
