It was brought to my attention that I never shared my finished series of fairy tale illustrations based on the months of the year. This was a huge project, much bigger than I ever thought it would be, but I’m so pleased and proud to be able to say I did it.

I can’t say whether I’ll tackle another project of this scale anytime soon, but I’m definitely pleased with the way the entire collection turned out. I hope you enjoyed seeing them all come together. Which month is your favorite? Let me know in the comments.
