Our midterm project for my Illustration class was a two page spread illustration of a story we remembered from our childhood. I had a book of classic children's stories, which I still have today, that had The Wizard of Oz, Pinnochio, Country Mouse and City Mouse, and The Snow Queen in it and I just fell in love with The Snow Queen. Thus, the logical choice for me was to illustrate this classic fairy tale.
Here's the final piece:
