Plinses is a semi-autobiographical fairy tale. It is a story about a girl who gets kidnapped by her mother to a different kingdom. There, Plinses has almost the same life as Cinderella. To escape this terrible reality Plinses starts playing online games. In one of those games she finds her savior. Plinses calls out for help. Her warrior comes to rescue. After taking care of the mother who is actually a terrible monster, he takes Plinses with him. Everything goes fine at her hero's place until the next day...
This was the first time for me trying to write an actual story. To help me with that I did research on fairy tales and their scenarios. After this research I used some of the stereotypes of fairy tales and created my own "modern" fairy tale with a not so happy ending.
The illustrations are painted with watercolour on a heavy grainy A3 paper. The final illustrations are 25x30cm, bound into a hardcover picture book.
