Fairy Tales: Effectiveness Through Pessimistic Emotions and Psychological Drama For Both Children and Adult Audiences
This collector’s set of illustrations engages with the use of communication and storytelling. Communicating other people’s ideas is a large part of what I do as a professional. This thesis explores fairy tales by utilizing them as a mechanism to talk about pessimistic emotions and character archetypes found within the fairy tale narrative. Despair, suffering, jealousy, pity, lust, vanity, curiosity, fear, shame, and torment are the emotions are the emotions portrayed in this set of illustrations.
