"My father lost me to The Beast at cards."
The Tiger’s Bride’ is Angela Carter’s take on Beauty and the Beast. It deals with revealing your animal side and finding acceptance for such honesty.
Worked digitally for the first time in a long time - just a practice piece really.

The Snow Child pricks her finger on a rose thorn and shortly after dies. 
An interesting reading of Angela Carter’s ‘The Snow Child’ is that the blood drawn by the rose thorn is symbolic of the girl’s first menstruation. As she is the physical embodiment of a King’s “perfect female” fantasy she dies when entering womanhood to remain an unattainable (and certainly an unrealistic) object of desire.
