original tales

Rescue and Adoption

In the heart of the fairy mound, there were two identical cradles, each with an identical infant inside.

“One of these babies is the one you bore,” said a fairy. “The other is the changeling we left. You may leave our hall with whichever child you claim as your own. Choose wisely.”

“But they are both my children,” the human mother protested indignantly.

The fairies whispered amongst themselves in surprise and confusion. At last, one asked, “How do you mean?”

“I came to get back the child you stole from me, the one who is mine by blood. I never agreed to give my adopted child back to you.”

Perhaps her words touched the fairies’ hearts; or perhaps her stubbornness impressed them; or perhaps they simply found the argument amusing, novel enough to merit a reward.

She left the fairy mound, an infant in each arm, and brought them home.

Commission for a little canadian fabric shop. The whole composition is based on the original tales. This work really exausted me, the worst part was balance colors and composition, but at least i’m satisfied. Some zoom on the single character may help you see better all the details :)

Samira Wiley as Moira

The former Orange is the New Black star will be featured on the upcoming Hulu series, The Handmaid’s tale. The actress plays Offred’s (Elisabeth Moss) college friend and fellow handmaiden who rebels against the totalitarian theocracy she is forced to live under. The character is a lesbian, that has resisted the homophobia of the new society.

Whenever I want to draw something cartoony but I don’t want to draw Skull-Kids! I work on my side project Charmless. Charmless is a parody of classic fairy-tales, with a kind-hearted dragon (Gale) , a rude prince (Olie), and a psychotic princess (Blossom). It’s a silly love story, with lots of violence as well.

meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control

Nooroo is a little S H I T

So Nooroo is being forced to work for Hawkmoth, who the fandom has so far presumed to be Gabriel Agreste. But that doesn’t mean he has to work with him.

  • Nooroo tickling Gabe during important meetings
    • Gabe at an important gala or ball or something, and Nooroo tickles him so he spills wine on himself, Nathalie, or someone else.
      • Nooroo smells like wine for a week but it was so worth it.
  • Nooroo hiding pens, phones, remotes, and sketchbooks when Gabe isn’t looking.
  • Gabe hates open windows at night, so Nooroo starts opening every single door and window in the house at night. Especially if its winter.
  • Nooroo releasing all the butterflies in the middle of a board meeting
  • Nooroo letting his head peek out of Gabe’s chest pocket or whatever in the middle of a meeting
    • Someone asks about it, and Gabe has to save his ass by saying he likes to collect beanie babies
    • Now whenever he has a board meeting with those people he has to have at least one beanie babie out and around to keep up the act.
      • People start asking about them. “So where’s this weeks Beanie Baby?”
    • People in these meetings start telling other people; other boards, designers, interns
      • Eventually at the beginning of every meeting, Gabe is asked about the beanie babies.
        • Eventually he just shows it off even if no one is asked. Show and Tell. It’s added to the official minutes for each meeting.
    • Gabriel Agreste getting attached to the beanie babies
    • When Pap Pap is arrested, he asks if he can bring the beanie babies with him
    • Gabe gets used to having them around and starts using them as models
