"Jasmine as Mermaid" (jasmer.gif, 578x770x2, 13499 bytes) is the fifty-second in a continuing series of fine Disney fanart drawings by Bob Ito <ito@[...]>. You may wish to save this description in a separate file for future reference.
One of the more amusing types of drawings in the Ito Galleries are the pictures that answer "what if" questions... "What if Belle had posed for the Mona Lisa?" [Ito Galleries #5]... "What if Belle had posed for the Statue of Liberty?" [Ito Galleries #43]... "What if Belle was a mermaid? [Ito Galleries #2]
On request of an admirer of Bob's work (whose name Bob, alas, has forgotten), we now have a new "what if" image: "What if Jasmine were a mermaid?" In this picture, we see Jasmine, whose lower half has been transformed by the magic of Bob's pen, as a mermaid playfully dipping her fins in a pool of water. Jasmine's pet and bodyguard, Rajah, looks on with a bit of concern.
