Fantastical subjects of every kind—from fairy tales to mythological beings. Don’t forget to look for the hidden Mousie!

My Mousie

'Beauty and Beast' by mousewords
Title: “Beauty and Beast”
Medium: Ink, Watercolor, and Colored Pencil on smooth Bristol paper
Size: ACEO, 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in.
Status: SOLD
This is the first in a series of storytelling art pieces, in which I incorporate text and hidden pictures to help the story along.
“Beauty and the Beast” is one of my favorite tales. In this interpretation, I chose to depict the transformation of the Beast back to his Princely form by focusing on his eyes, which were always a sign of his humanity, even when his outward visage was horrible to behold.
'Beauty's Dream' by mousewords
Title: “Beauty’s Dream”
Medium: Ink, Watercolor, and Colored Pencil on smooth Bristol paper
Size: ACEO, 2 1/2
in. x 3 1/2 in.
Status: SOLD
The second in the storytelling series, this piece uses hidden pictures to describe the dreams that drift through Sleeping Beauty’s mind. The Fairies and spinning wheel are reminders of her enchantment, while the images of a heart and a handsome Prince hint at the future she awakens to.
'Thumbelina' by mousewords
Title: “Thumbelina”
Medium: Ink, Watercolor, and Colored Pencil on smooth Bristol paper
Size: ACEO, 2 1/2 in. x 3 1/2 in.
Status: SOLD
This is the third in my storytelling art series. I didn’t set out to do “Thumbelina” next–really, it’s not one of the first that comes to mind when you think of popular fairy tales–but I had a sketch started that fit the theme perfectly. The result is one of my favorite cards to date. The way the hidden pictures worked out, combined with the soft colors, just makes it really pleasing in person. The meaning behind the tale also added to the artwork.
