Part of me is responding quite literally to the fairy story connotations of the title. This is the bit of me that collects children’s books (though I usually prefer Shaun Tan and Dave KcKean to the more traditional approach.)
This part isdeveloping drawings and experimenting with reproducing them – so far using photocopy litho printing. I like this way of introducing text within the image (spot the not so deliberate mistake).
Another bit of me thinks I should be responding more to themes contained within the original fairy story, Ideas such as imprisonment, isolation, unsuccessful protection from loss of innocence. Probably using a more structural, less literal approach using motifs associated with the story.
So far it seems to be developing into tall and thin. I’m giving myself time to play for a while.
