2012 Fairytale Project: The Snow Queen
Just in the nick of time, here's June's illustration for the Fairytale Project. Phew.
I decided that the Snow Queen might feel more imposing if she was standing, instead of sitting on her throne, so I re-did the drawing. I thought about using light blue ink to outline the Queen, but I chickened out. Now I'm wishing I would have taken the blue ink plunge. Hm... maybe next time I'll be more bold. But I loved drawing these characters, especially our dear villainess, and can't wait to re-visit this story. There are so many wonderful scenes to choose from! But for now I'll check June, and The Snow Queen, off of my list. For next month I'm thinking "Baba Yaga".
In other news, I'm very happy to announce that I was chosen as this year's runner up for the Don Freeman grant. Thank you SCBWI! The winner was Dan Moynihan, and I'm very honored to be in his company. Congratulations, Dan!
