Happy Mother’s Day!

May 12, 2013


Motherhood is the most important job in the world.

I thought I’d update an old sketch of the fairy tale princess having tea with her mother, who is teaching her little girl how to be a proper lady. Good posture and holding one’s little finger out are only the basics.

I am aware of how anachronistic tea cups are in the Middle Ages, but who really cares? 😉

April Fools’ Day Elegance?

April 1, 2013


Since I’ve never been a prankster, I thought I’d just post a sketch of the fairy tale princess wearing a jester hat (or fool’s cap) for April Fools’ Day. I’m not sure how, but she has managed to make it look almost classy.

A bundle of bunnies

I never thought I’d draw my fairy tale princess looking so much like, well, a fairy tale princess. But how could I resist the chance of drawing so many adorable little rabbits?

I hope everyone has a lovely Easter!

Harp playing for Saint Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2013


I thought I’d post a quick sketch of the fairy tale princess playing the harp, though it’s more of a gothic harp in shape, and not an Irish harp or clàrsach/cláirseach. Still, she’s wearing green and she’s lovely. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2013


Solitude is preferable to unwanted attention. If you’re alone this Saint Valentine’s Day, be grateful.

Here’s a little Valentine’s Day themed sketch of the fairy tale princess surrounded by a number of persistent Prince Charmings. Somehow I don’t think the flowers and hand-kissing are winning her over.

Happy New Year!

January 1, 2013


The fairy tale princess wishes to cheer you on, that you might succeed with your New Year’s resolution!

Because I was never a cheerleader, I put her in gold and green, my mother’s old squad/team colors.

The Little Snow Angel

December 24, 2012


Merry Christmas!

While trying to figure out what I could draw for a Christmas post, I got this image in my head. Perfect! The fairy tale princess in her girlhood, making a snow angel. I decided to put her in a rich green dress because I love the color, and almost every single Christmas dress I’ve ever seen has been red. I wish you could see the trinity knots on the gold skirt trim better, but you’ll have to click on the thumb below for that.
