Amarantha Reading by AbigailLarson Amarantha Reading by AbigailLarson
This was for my graphic essay course. We wrote a fairytale and then chose scenes to illustrate. This is one of my spot illustrations. Here's an excerpt:

"Years passed, and Amarantha began to grow into a woman. Still she wore the old red ribbon around her neck, refusing to remove it. Archibald the skeleton stayed by her side and told her stories about what the world was like when he had been alive, about kings and queens, all the books he had read, fancy balls, and motorcars. But the more she heard, the more interested she became until one day she announced she was going to venture into the town.

Archibald knew in the space of his empty ribcage where his heart had once been that this day would come, because after all, Amarantha was a person, not a skeleton, and could not be expected to stay with him forever. He bade her farewell, and asked her to at least come back and visit, to which Amarantha promised she would.

Amarantha flourished in the city. She attended balls, read books, and rode in motorcars, just as Archibald had told her..."
