Yeah, it was an early 1900's kids book, and we had a lot to learn about sexual identity. But with all we've learned since then, wouldn't now be a great time to tell the story of a boy struggling to be the girl society needs him to be? Wouldn't it be funny to see Glinda teaching him to be queenly in a "Popular" type musical number? (Look it up if you haven't seen Wicked.) And who wouldn't cry with him as the weight of his decision finally hits (because what 12 year old has great long-term decision-making skills)?
But again, a great painting and my reading on it.
Sucks that mainstream media won't embrace a trans princess though.
Hell, I'd see either one, though
Great composition and symbolism!
anyway, please accept this llama as a token of my appreciation!
о, я читала книжку подроском, и она меня своими сюжетными перепетиями потрясла %>

That's definitely my favorite Oz book! To be honest I was sad to lose Tip. He was awesome as a guy... even though I like Ozma a lot, but still...
Great drawing. I love the colors and the concept, all beautifully executed. This made my day. ^-^
