Hans Christian Andersen's 205th Birthday

More Doodles

Apr 2, 2010

Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales sparked the imaginations of generations of children. For this series, one of the first multi-part narrative doodles we created, I had the privilege to interpret Andersen's famous work, Thumbelina.

In the first panel, Thumbelina steps into the world for the first time, emerging from a flower. She is, however, a few sizes smaller than the rest of the people in the world.
