Something else pretty for you today!
This lovely illustration is Night Song by Elisabeth Alba, from Hans Christian Andersen's The Nightingale and was submitted to The Society of Illustrators 54 Call For Entries in November last year. You can read a little more about it at Ms. Alba's blog HERE.
Although she's still refining her technique and style via some very capable mentoring (see her blog for details), I think her how she approaches work is perfect for fairy tales. I look forward to seeing her blossom in confidence and develop that unique style stamp that's already drawing people to her illustrations.
Elisabeth Alba's portfolio is HERE and her shop is HERE. The banner (below) is an portion of her Beauty and the Beast illustration, a print of which is available at her Etsy shop. I suggest you buy some prints now, before she gets super famous and her prints get super expensive!
