If you’re any kind of Disney fan, chances are you have a favorite Disney princess (or maybe you love all of them?!). And, as a kid, I imagine you were REALLY into your fav, too. Like, we’re talking posters, action figures, costumes — basically, the sky was the limit!
For 23-year-old Venezuelan artist Frank Figueredo, however, being into Disney princesses was not so accepted when he was growing up.
“There was a problem,” Figueredo explained to BuzzFeed, “people told me that I could not have those preferences because I was not a ‘normal child.’ But why? I just spent it drawing in my notebooks the princesses that I liked and why not? I could not understand why I should not admire them. They seemed so great to me. They were adventurous, fantastic, they fought for a goal and fulfilled their dreams. For me they were like warriors.”
