"This print was an act of love for this character and the film and is my vision of a styled grown-up version of Mathilda. It is a personal sketch that I am excited to share because I hope more people discover this wonderful and exciting story. A personal dream, I would love to develop a graphic novel sequel to the film and continue Mathilda’s story. – Francine Delgado
