How Rapunzel might wake up in the morning… and then go right back to sleep. (From my journal I kept during Tangled where I translated my day to day life into Rapunzel’s)

Some more sketches from the journal I kept in 2009 during Tangled while developing the character of Rapunzel. These drawings are from my research of what a typical day in the life of Rapunzel might have been.
She would write in her journal, do laundry, prepare the fireplace for her daily hair brushing session with Mother Gothel. She had chores. She had ideas. She had good days and bad. Some days her paintings represented her hope, other days they represented her fears. Rapunzel was a regular girl bursting at the seems with creativity. Walls could not contain her spirit.

From my Rapunzel journal: trying to get inside the head of the 18 yr old girl who’d lived her whole childhood locked inside a tower.
What does Rapunzel feel about being an adult? What does being an adult represent? Does this mean leaving behind the childhood stories (monsters outside the tower etc…) she’s believed her whole life?
What does being an adult woman mean to Rapunzel?
Excerpts from a journal I kept while working on Rapunzel. I needed to believe in her as if she were real so I documented my life and thoughts when I was at home not doing anything in particular and translated them into Rapunzel’s world. When it came time to paint her murals I felt like I had a good idea of what she would be thinking about while she was painting.

She put lollipops in her hair and pretended to be Vanellope XD
