Fairytale Illustrations

“Sleeping Beauty”

I always felt that “Sleeping Beauty” had a kind of dark feeling to it. I went for very bright colors to make the feel look fairytale, but also poisonous, like a snake or an insect with bright colored skin. Also, I wanted to show that the girl is like a part of the intricate surrounding she is in, like a very passive participant in the events around her.

The White Hour


This was part of a self – motivated series I did during my stay in New Mexico. I was inspired by the richness of the culture and somehow though it would work well combined with the theme of popular children' s fairy tales.
