I have had the desire to do children’s stories for sometime but could not visualize how I would have liked for the characters to look. I kept remembering the stories being told to me as a child. Many of them didn’t have pictures, it caused for me to visualize as a child and make the characters sort of real.

This almost how I saw them only their clothing was more vintage German from the 40’s.

This piece was created with micro fine tipped black ink, and gray scale Prismacolor markers.
