The other night I was sitting around doodling and it turned out to be Rapunzel in the tower. I thought it had potential so I coloured and inked it up. This prompted me to re-acquaint myself with the Grimm fairy-tales as well, I always liked them when I was growing up. It’s funny how some I seem to remember well, others are coming back to me as I’m reading and yet others I don’t remember at all.
I’m interpreting the fact that I ended up drawing Rapunzel as a sign that fairy tales must be lurking in my subconsciousness waiting to pounce on an opportunity to emerge (any psychologists out there who want to give me a free diagnosis, feel free to do so). To accommodate the fairy tales (it always goes wrong when you try to deny these things, all the stories say so) I have decided to attempt to illustrate at least some of the brothers Grimm stories. Rapunzel was the first, hope you like her, others will hopefully follow soon.
