'Jorinda and Jorindel'

'Jorinda and Jorindel'

My submission is a selection of illustrations from the picture book I designed which illustrates the Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Jorinda and Jorindel'. The fairy tale is about a young couple, Jorinda and Jorindel, who are separated when a wicked witch turns Jorinda into a nightingale.

I was inspired by the beautiful imagery found within this fairy tale.
