If you loved Enchanted, Tangled, or Frozen, you've been admiring Claire Keane's work for years. Her family is full of artists--including her grandfather Bil Keane, the creator of Family Circus--and she spent many years in the animation world before becoming an illustrator.

The art gorgeously captures ocean-floor environments, depicts sea creatures both mythic and real, and evokes the truly unknown, unexplored nature of the sea that makes underwater settings so ripe for adventures and possibilities.
