Fairy tale - Composers and creators


It took me ages, but I did it. I did a poster featuring the lads and ladies known as composers and collectors of fairy tales, and rulers of my heart. *laughs*

My two favorite things about this is that Collodi (creator of The Adventures of Pinocchio) looks like a Disney villain and that Scheherazade is front and center. I know she isn’t a real person, but she represents all the people who participated to the creation of the 1001 nights. 

This was used as an update in our Namesake guest week. Seemed à propos considering the comic’s plot.

This is available as a print here.

I looked up a bunch of these people on google once. They're pretty cool, too bad they're not more well known.

I love this! Especially way you had drawn Lewis Carroll(he looks so cute in this :3!). And as for H.C. Andersen, where were you when Disney did that episode of "The Little Mermaid" show where he appeared in? I love Disney but they didn't get his hair color right! They needed you!

That Awkward Moment When You're one of the few people in the World who recognizes more than half of these names and faces... :O

Literally how I feel right now ;)

nice picture though in my opinion I would put jewell's vern in this (yeah his work is more sci fi but to me its very creative like a fantasy)

I was kinda disapointed that OUAT did'nt mentioned or referenced the authors/collectors of fairy tales.

OUAT's content is built a lot around Disney's versions of the tale and the idea that the stories are "real", so it didn't really fit in the plot I think.

I truly was disapointed that this show only refrenced the Disney versions. 
Wonderful. I love the way you have drawn Lewis Carroll.

Collecting the collectors.

I am not so familiar with some of them, so now you have given me something fun to do. :)

I really love this poster. So much to look at. It's nice to see your take on people and I always love your creature designs.

Drawing cartoony portraits is something I love doing.

Ooooo really nice. Some of them I've never heard of so I'll be sure to check them out. Great drawing

I absolutely adore this picture. I sadly don't recognize many of them, but I got excited when I reached Jeanne Marie LePrince de Beaumont. I had to do a French project on a famous French person, and I choose her. I'm going to try and get a print sometime around the new year. Brilliant work, and I'm looking for to more from you.

Aw, thank you! :)

I love it! <3 The "creators" are great, and I adore all the small creatures around the tree trunk.
