Mixed media illustration, using black biro, orange, black, and pink watercolours, orange coloured pencil, and digital painting, with a grey, textured, digitally painted background. On the left hand side, the pumpkin carriage is travelling down a path, pulled by 2 small mice. Text follows the shape of the path, reading: “Cinderella made her way to the ball, she had no excuses after all.” in a hand-drawn typeface. On the right hand side, is a close up of the pumpkin carriage. Cinderella is struggling to climb out of the carriage, covered in pumpkin gunk. The text reads: “When she arrived, the music was thumping, she could feel it as she squeezed out of her pumpkin.”

The Clock Struck Twelve 
In mid-2020, I completed my self-initiated Cinderella project. I aimed to produce 4 book spreads for my own contemporary take on the classic fairy tale. The tone was tongue-in-cheek, accompanied by rhyming text of my own creation. This spread shows Cinderella's reluctant journey, and arrival, at the ball.
