Gerda's journey to find Kay, The Snow Queen

A pictorial map of Gerda's Journey to find Kay in The Snow Queen. Anderson's The Snow Queen is split into seven separate stories and consequently I chose an image to represent each story and thus Gerda's long journey to Kay. The colours used represent the Northern lights which were the backdrop to Gerda's journey. The circular form of the illustration eludes to both the cycle of the story and life. Gerda and Kay leave home as children and return finally as adults. This pictorial map was my last illustration for my Final Major Project. The target audience was sophisticated adults and it could be used within a collectable edition of The Snow Queen. Mixed media pencil, fineliner, white pen and Adobe Photoshop.
