Hawaiian Hula Girl

12 comments
I just got back from a vacation trip to Hawaii with my family. No doubt it was the inspiration for this image. What a beautiful island paradise. The hula is an amazing dance: it really is hypnotic. The swaying of the grass skirts and fluid motions of the body look very much like the swaying palm trees and ocean waves. Really relaxing.

I had been to Kauai on a photo research trip many years ago, Disney sent a group of us doing visual development for Lilo & Stitch. But, this was the first time I was able to vacation in Hawaii.

Hi Marcelo, Great drawing! Hawaii is so nice and the work that you did on Lilo was very inspiring. I was just checking out the "art of l&s" this morning. Talking of which in the Atlantis and brother bear art of books you did some amazing work for FX concepting and I was wondering if you had more of it?
