Illustrate the cover of a new children’s book. The story to be illustrated is a retelling of a classic fairy tale, adapted to our contemporary place, time and sensibility. A good example of an adapted fairy tale is The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munch.
Specs: The illustration should be 8″ x 10″ using mixed media. Due Week Five, February 1st.
The list of possible fairy tales is long, including –
- Goldilocks and the Three Bears
- Little Red Riding Hood
- The Ugly Duckling
- Hansel and Gretal
- The Pied Piper of Hamlin
