Oh wow! This is such a beautiful illustration! I remember really loving the book "Daughter of the Forest" when I was young so I really like the pick of "Six Swans" as your fairy tale to illustrate

Re: Swan Brothers


This piece reminds me of children's book illustrations from the 1920s... very fitting for a fairy tale themed derby. Well done.

Aside from the fact that this is from one of my favorite fairytales (aside from The Little Sea Maid, Sleeping Beauty, and The Twelve Dancing Princesses), this is absolutely gorgeous!

I. will. kill. you. now.(unwarranted Arnold reference) 'When I was young'? Damn, that book seems like yesterday! Grrrumphhh!
Yes, well, it's all kinds of pretty and all that. And even apropos, and, well, kinda nice...
Oh hell and a >facepalm<. My recent fiction is your historical lit, I guess. Either way, this is beautiful. My only small crit would be some more indication of the pain of the spinning. Just a tad, to bring it home. But don't mess with it - GMV!

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • It was you who picked the pieces up when I was a broken soul and then glued me back together; returned to me what others stole.

I was thinking that book is pretty recent, too. I looked it up - 2002. That doesn't seem like that long ago, but it's actually 9 years! Stuff like that makes me feel old, and I'm only 27!

Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun...
