Project 4: Story concept

Tricia Browne


In this version of Thumbelina, Thumbelina still emerges from the flower of barleycorn given to a peasant’s wife by a beggar woman. She is still kidnapped in her walnut-shell cradle in the night by a toad who wants her as a bride for her son. And is helped to escape by a nice fish and butterfly.

My version follows the story line till she is left to protect herself from the elements. Out of survival she teaches herself methods of hunting and getting used to eating certain foods she watches how the other animals/bugs live and adapts.

One day she is given shelter by a field mouse. Who tells her about a people who are in danger of being attacked constantly they have a small army but they still need more people to protect them. Thumbelina sets out to search for them with a little guidance from the mouse telling her the direction to go. When she finds them she offers her help. She shows them her skilled as a warrior and they train her further when he is finished she sprouts wings and is given the ability to fly alongside the other warriors which includes the prince of their people. She had been trained by him and some others.


suggestions-Project 2 – Tricia Browne

Hello professor wolley,

I did what you advised and took the bird and fan and moved it around in different ways to see what was best. i would like if you gave your opinion on which one i should use.

i wasn’t sure if i should fix the cut out area the bird left or leave that for inking that is why it is there in most of the concepts. that goes for almost all of them i was not really sure if i should complete the fan or just wait for the inking process.

bir on top of fan

This is a close up version of the original idea


This is a smaller version i would complete more of the fan in this after it is printed.

This is the one i feel i like the best because you can have the poster in two different directions and it would still be right side up

i also like this one that has the fan big with the bands logo and the bird separated and on the bottom.
