Rumpelstiltskin - Illustrated Book
Rumpelstiltskin - The Grimm Brothers
Illustrated by Sarah Shiels 

As part of a college project we were tasked with the job of Narrating a story. I have always found that the Grimm Brothers had intriguing stories so I eventually settled on the tale of Rumpelstiltskin. I wanted to create a slightly dark, grunge atmosphere through my illustrations to reflect the story. The creation of each page was a long process as I used a mixture of traditional hand techniques and digital manipulation. 
Each image is a drypoint intaglio etching with individually tea stained backgrounds. Once I hand printed the etchings I added colour on photoshop to further enhance the grim aspects of the story.  Here are some pages from the book!
