Greetings Castle Folk...

The first challenge of 2015 is: Dark Fairytales. I think we're all (overly) familiar with all the tales that are sweet and probably made for young ones. But what about those that are a little darker with not necessarily a happy ending? I'm thinking of many of the Grimm tales and Hans Christian Anderson for instance. I hope you find this concept inspiring, as I do.

Create a work that is based on a fairytale. This can be dark, macabre and even horror. I'd like to see your best work, in any medium. Be sure to reference in your note which tale you are illustrating.

:bulletred: Fairytale or "dark tale" must be your inspiration
:bulletred: Media open
:bulletred: Reference your tale in your description Castle-of-Cards
:bulletred: End Date: March 1, 2015

OK, I think this covers it all. Be sure to tell your friends or include this journal in any groups you are an "influencer" in. It would be great to have LOADS of dark tales to muse on over a nice cup of tea. :)
