Earlier this year I had the pleasure to illustrate a fairytale for Storytime Magazine.

A huge emotion and personal + professional goal for more than a reason: I’ve always wanted to work for Storytime, and they trusted me to illustrate an incredible story.
Cap o’Rushes tell a Cinderella like story but with a clever twist wich is awesome. Our heroine faces her adventure with kindness and perseverance, she is kind yet strong, a great model to refer to.

I fell for her immediately and started thinking how to draw her like a true princess without forgetting her cleverness, plus she was to be desguised under a cape made of shrubberies, which was artistically intriguing.
As I always do, everything started on my sketchbook, with some quick character sketch and ideas, plus a colour test to decide mood and palette.

Storytime is a wondeful magazine, it’s quality is superb (see flip-through video below), contents and design are amazing just like people working for it.
