I have a confession to make. I have a huge weakness for fairy tales (and their retellings!). Some of my favorite authors are indieauthors like K.M. Shea and Brittany Fichter who write a lot of retellings. Despite how many retellings I've already read or watched, I always enjoy finding a new one! One of my work-in-progress novels has even started taking on characteristics of a retelling which was never in the original plans! I also take inspiration from fairy tales in my jewellery creation like for the piece below which was inspired by Elsa and Anna from Disney's 'Frozen' or for the bracelet that I'm working on right now that's inspired by the story of Snow White and Rose Red.
Earlier, I shared a digital painting I did of Red Riding Hood along with a little seed story for the piece. Well, I would like to do more fairy tale inspired paintings and would like to know what everyone's favorite fairy tale is! I currently have a piece planned for Jack and the Beanstalk (with a twist of course!) to go along with a story I wrote for a 75 word story challenge at SFF Chronicles (a forum for scifi/fantasy lovers, both writers and nonwriters).
So what fairy tales would you like to see?
