::"Molly Whuppie" LANTERN::

Such a quirky tale. One of the darker fairy tales coming out of Scotland, left unedited by time. There's a nasty giant, a brave girl, and a prince to marry. . . I was asked to recreate two scenes for this lantern. The first: Molly fleeing from the giant across the "one-hair bridge." The second: Molly peeking at the giant's castle from the cover of the trees. I found this a challenging lantern for two reasons: 1. I am not very adept at sketching people. 2. I was asked to make Molly's cape RED. That is not easy to do while trying to maintain a bold silhouette. So, the final result is not perfect, but I think it captures the tale.
