It’s all about the scissors this week. I could have done something simpler (e.g. Ann Boleyn) but I wanted to illustrate Famous Scissors of Fairytales three weeks running, and yes, the scissors play a legitimate role in this fairytale which is, of course, “Snow White and Rose Red”.

You can see a close-up on Flickr.

Here is the black and white version, cleaned up slightly in Photoshop.

And here is a progress shot. You can see poor Ann Boleyn with “her head tooked underneath her arrrrm” at the top right of the page of sketches.
