FAIRYTALES: Once upon a time

A great percentage of wonderful stories begins with the four famous words "Once upon a time..."

So we figured, it might be a promising start to dedicate our first proper post to them:
Here's a selection of illustrations I made last spring, for a book of fairytales, including traditional stories by Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm. In contrast to the original, old-fashioned tales I tried to give the illustrations a modern uptake and more contemporary feel.




Dornröschen/The sleeping beauty

Aschenputtel/Cinderella

Schneewittchen/Snow White

Schneewittchen/´Snow White

Die kleine Meerjungfrau/The Little mermaid

Schneeweißchen und Rosenrot/Snowwhite and Redrose


Jorinde und Joringel/Jorinde and Joringel

Die Gänsehirtin am Brunnen/The Goose-Girl at the Well

Die Gänsehirtin am Brunnen/The Goose-Girl at the Well

Die Prinzessin auf der Erbse/Princess and the pea
