What is your favourite fairytale? As a child mine was the conventional Cinderella, an unrecognised heroine waiting to be taken away from all that. And taken away from all that I was. But that's not the fairy tale that has stayed with me; that honour belongs to The Snow Queen. Which may mean I am psychopathic.
I saw an online class for a year of drawing and painting fairy tales, and I thought, how silly and frivilous and bloody brilliant. I had a little bit of Christmas money left over (the rest was spent on an instant camera and photo software because instant camera and photo software) and decided to sign myself up. I can't draw, I'll be appalling. It'll be great.
