  1. Those frogs are up to no good.

  2. I would love to have this hanging in my house somewhere. I love her facial expression and body language. Hesitant, searching and a little innocent. Very Disney-esque with the creatures all around. Beautiful!

    • I had a hard time picking which one of her illustrations to post, honestly. They all have that same slightly wistful quality that she captures so nicely. It’s a shame she’s not more known as an illustrator.

  3. Nice! It’s like a witch with Little Red Riding Hood overtones. Minus the hood, the basket, the red, and pretty much everything that makes up Little Red Riding Hood. Omigod what am I saying? I’ve lost my train of thought.

  4. Reblogged this on fiftyshadesofgay and commented:
    Gorgeous! I love old illustrations like this…

  5. Love the bats in the background. Adds so much to the picture.
