Grimm and Other Folk Tales : The Final Work

Hey everyone I know we had a long wait to see these finals. Thanks again for sticking with me. The work here represents a couple months worth of evenings. I started concept work in January, had surgery on my shoulder Jan. 30, and worked like crazy for the next several weeks and evenings. The whole thing went off without a hitch and I couldn't have done it without the help of my beautiful wife.

I've also made a little video tour of all the pieces, so with further ado, here they are.

I wanted to thank you all for waiting all this time to see these. In the coming days I'll be posting pictures of the show and a few other things. We had a great opening and a fantastic turnout! Thank you all!

Prints are now available! Visit my Etsy shop! It's under construction at the moment, I'll be adding more to it but I've got all of the matted 8 x 10 prints available. The prints turned out perfect and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality. They were the best seller of opening night. We sold out quickly of several but more are on the way!

Great to see them presented like this in the video.

Your work is extraordinary! My teaching, blogs and research involve fairy tales. Your images are inspiring!
By the way, my parents live of the Isle of Palms in SC. Whereabouts are you?
