This little series were originally created as “warm-ups” at the beginning of each studio day. It began with 8 Grimm’s fairy tales, all taking place in the forest. Each panel connects via the landscape and proceeds through the seasons (summer-summer), so will form a continuous scene when all lined up. Besides this, I challenged myself to not just illustrate a scene from each story, but to encompass the entire story into one image- every character and major plot point in one frame. I primarily chose lesser-known tales which all had the similar theme: the truth is hidden just under the surface.
These have now become very popular, gaining commissions for specific stories from buyers. I will also be continuing to make them to be available exclusively at Radius Gallery in Missoula
Each piece is framed at 6.5”x6.5” . If you are interested in your own Grimm, or another fairy tale/myth, be sure to inquire on my Contact page or at this link to: Radius Gallery.
