The Pea Princess
bedtime stories - ipad/ipod app
These are the illustrations I did for an ipad & ipod application called bedtime stories.
These stories are made for children ( and grownups if you are like me, still in love with Walt Disney and Rebecca Dautremer)  that come with a range of languages wich you can choose. This one is the story about The Pea and Princess and what was really good was that I had total freedom in doing them.
I drew the scenes and characters  with pencil and the painting was done almost exclusively with Photoshop.

Now go buy it! ;)
[Bedtime Stories]
He travelled all over the world to find one, but it was difficult to find out whether they ere real princesses or not.
So he came home again, sad and without a real princess.
One evening a terrible storm came on; there was a thunder and lightning and the rain poured down in torrents. Suddenly a knocking was heard at the city gate, and the old king went to open it.
A beautiful girl was standing out there in front of the gate. The water ran down from her hair and clothes; it ran down into the toes of her shoes and out again at the heels.
"Hello", she said, I'm a princess and I was wondering if you could give me shelter for the night?"
Suspicious wheter she was a real princess, the old queen went to the bedroom and placed a pea on the bottom of the bed.
Then she took twenty mattresses and laid them on the pea and asked the princess to go to sleep.
In the morning the queen asked "Did you sleep well, my dear?"
"Oh no...I slept so badly!" she said. "Heaven knows what was in my bed, but I was lying on something so hard I have scarcely closed my eyes all night"
The queen immediately knew that she was indeed a real princess as only one could be as sensitive to feel the pea through the twenty mattresses
So the prince took her for his wife, for now he was sure that he had a real princess...and they lived happyly ever after.
