Daan Jippes on Aladdin

Here are  a few more drawings by Daan Jippes. 
They are early character designs for the Genie, the Thief, Aladdin and Abu. As usual Daan’s work is inventive, alive and very animatable. His influences are European comic greats like Franquin and Uderzo, and of course Disney’s Freddie Moore. But his art certainly has its own identity. What I love most about Daan’s stuff is that he keeps surprising you with unusual, unconventional poses, expressions and staging.
