The Backpacker

Watercolor, ink, and digital media, 2023

fairytale-esque watercolor illustration of a Thumbelina-like character backpacking up a hill through moss, wildflowers, mushrooms, and lichen

An illustration of the opening scene of Alena Thumb, a manuscript-in-progress reimagining Thumbelina as a feminist fairytale epic. Created with watercolor and ink, and finished digitally on Procreate.

The character design process for Alena Thumb can be seen here. My other illustrations for the story can be seen here.
