Muscular Princesses

Anybody can draw in a naïve art style, but few do it well. Muscular Princesses (original title: Izmos királylányok) by Júlia Farkas uses a deceptively childlike style to illustrate a decidely “fractured” fairy tale. There is expressive character animation, creative staging choices, and a playful sense of visual humor that matches the absurd tone of the story. The results brought a smile to my face. It’s a 2009 graduation film from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest.
