Naomi Scott as Jasmine steals the show.  Her costumes, her delivery, her original song- she nails it all.

Art Spotlight – Xi Ding

Caricature art is something that’s always intriguing, as it can be done so quickly and so effectively depending on the artist.

According to his website, he can draw caricatures for up to 120 people throughout the course of one evening event! That’s serious skill. What drew our attention to him though, was his work on characters from popular movies and television shows. Check out his website here, and some of our favorite pieces below!
