We were asked to take an evil character and illustrate them as an infant. I chose the evil magician, Jafar, from Disney's Aladdin because of two reasons: I've always loved the warm color palette used in the film to convey the "broiling desert sun" and also because i love those cut, little, arabian shoes!
In the Disney story, Jafar is the Sultan of Agrabah's most trusted advisor. However, he is a scheming, power-hungry magician that wants to take control over the kingdom and he believes he can do so if he finds the magical lamp.
In this illustration, Little Jafar is playing in a sandbox moments after he kicked over a sand palace. This moment captures Little Jafar standing triumphantly over the crumbling sand palace and discovering the magical lamp behind the destruction.
