So, Amy and her sister went to New York comic con over the last couple of days. One of my favourite artists was exhibiting there – Amy Mebberson. She draws an unofficial disney series called “Pocket Princesses”, which I love. I have all sorts of hers lying around the house.
This year she was taking commissions of her work to be collected at the con. I asked her to draw something that I find absolutely hilarious. Elsa (Frozen) meeting Nancy (Enchanted). Why hilarious? Because they are played/voiced by the same actress – the incomparable Idina Menzel.
Amy picked up the commission for me yesterday and I am absolutely in love with it, but I picked up maximum dork points tonight by having Idina Menzel sign it!
Needless to say it’s going in a frame and never coming out again!
(Please no taking this. It’s a commission that I paid for and the artist kindly took the time to draw.)
We met Idina at the stage door of her current show- If/Then, high is on at the Richard Rogers a theater, Broadway, New York, the show was absolutely fantastic too, but more on that another time,

We don’t anything liked this in the UK. So jealous!!!
I’m a massive comic book fan, in particular DC Comics so would love to meet Frank Miller or similar.
There’s a few in London that Amy goes to throughout the year, but you’re right the quality isn’t as high as the US ones.
That picture’s adorable.
