Home Peach Home

Once upon a time, there was a little fairy whose name was Peach. She was wandering in the woods, lost and homeless, because their kingdom was swallowed by a ginormous whale. It was a great relief that her wings were made of stories her mother told her when she was still a baby. You see, fairies need stories to keep them alive. The others of her kind weren’t able to fly because kids do not read books anymore, and there are no late night storytelling to eavesdrop.

Peach flew from village to village, sharing her stories of wonder, sadness, horror, and of love. She got more stories in return. At last, she found the kingdom of the Storyteller, which was pink and dreamy all over. She was welcomed and she served under the Storyteller until years later she was crowned as the new Storyteller, and she then had her own kingdom which she filled with her wonderful and delightful tales.

The End.


Well, this illustration was one of my earlier works back in late 2009. I still didn’t have a tablet so this was created using a mouse and a lot of textures (which I still love using until now). This was inspired by French illustrator Nicolas Gouny’s works. His illustrations never fail to amaze me, he’s just awesome. Nicolas Gouny will always have this special place in my heart as one of the people who first inspired me to create children’s illustrations.
