Shawn Coss is a 35-year-old illustrator based out of Akron, Ohio, who's been drawing for as long as he can remember.
In 2016 he illustrated a series of various mental health conditions at the request of fans that went viral and got picked up by numerous publishers.
Around that time his two young daughters got really into Disney films. He went on to tell how that went for him. "I fell into that familiar parent/child black hole of watching Disney features on repeat for eternity. I have lost wall space to tally up all the time’s I’ve seen Frozen, Moana, Little Mermaid, and so many more."
Coss said at one point one of his fans suggested he draw Disney princesses. With Disney now being a big part of his life, he decided to draw the princesses in his own unique style.
