My history of the Bad Girl..

After my 2018 Mickey’s 90th birthday exhibition hiccup, where 2 days prior to the opening my artwork had been banned for my “interesting instagram content” I renamed myself, the bad girl of Disney.

It was such a shame, as I’d almost got away with turning Mickey into Hugh Hefner! Under a signed contract I can never publicly show this artwork but it does hang in the pool room of a person that I’ll name Mr Anonymous.

So when it came to dishing out character for the Sesame Street Exhibition, Eddie Zammit couldn’t wait to give me Baddy McBad - pretty on point don’t you think…

My interpretation of Baddy McBad which I’ve illustrated.

Which mask do you wear?

When Baddy McBad topples in her super-suit it’s a metaphor. The inflated ego (super-suit) is bravado (mask), lack of self-image and self-worth. Once your tumble off you high horse let your guard down, you rebuild from the ground up. You put your own oxygen mask on. Then you can assist others to be better versions of themselves.
