So, when I was a kid my family collected the Random House Golden Books.
Some of my favorite books were the ones illustrated by Sheilah Beckett.
She really helped form my idea of beauty, what illustration should look like,
and what I wished i could draw like.
here we have a 2 page spread from Cinderella
Here we have Sleeping Beauty and her Prince... i think when i crop it
i might have oriented it back wards... humm
And 2 of my favorites, Snow White and Rose Red. I loved the way they
thought through their problems and helped to solve the Prince of the
stories problem too.
Now I'm going to share a little secret with you all. You know when people
say "I've thought about my wedding dress since i was a little girl". Well,
I never really have. "Oh that's pretty." is generally my thoughts but there is
no grand plan in my head waiting to be executed.
That said, when we would play pretend, this is what I pretended to look
Sans the glass slippers though. They can't be good for dancing in.
I think I'm going to have to find more illustrations by Sheilah Beckett.
