"I figured if I could sum up what was wrong with the face of girls’ marketing today in one succinctly satirized image, it might make it easier for us to admit how we fail. And sometimes the best way to reveal something is to provide a fresh look at what’s already right in front of our eyes."
This is what David Trumble, Political Cartoonist and Author/Illustrator, set out to do when he embarked on his latest visual project in partnership with the woman who literally wrote the book on the subject of the limits and dangers of the Princess Culture mold, Dr. Rebecca Hains, a leading children’s media culture expert and professor of advertising and media studies.
The result of their collaboration is a single, compelling image that encapsulates a problem... The Princess Problem.
