I struggled with what story I wanted to tell - and ultimately settled on one of my favorite stories, The Princess and the Pea. This is a rough, rough sketch. I wanted the princess to look alone and separate from everyone else. The maids are hovering and whispering and secretive. I think I need to make them a bit more closed to themselves (does that make sense? Huddled?). They are in the doorway peeking in from the shadows. The princess is small, and climbing a tall, teetering ladder onto a tall, teetering pile of mattresses.
