The Red Shoes

Scroll down for more illustrations -
I've just finished a short project, illustrating the fairytale "The Red Shoes",
by Hans Christian Andersen.
A creepy tale, but so much fun to illustrate!


Karen herself was dressed very neatly and cleanly; she was taught to read and to sew, and people said that she was pretty. But the mirror told her, “You are more than pretty—you are beautiful.”

 She danced out into the open Churchyard ; But there the Dead do not Dance ;
they have far better things to do.

"Dance shalt thou!" said he. "Dance in thy red shoes till thou art pale and cold!

But strike off my feet in the red shoes!
