FaerieTales: the Character Book

Jezebel Glass

For the longest time, I’ve wanted to create a handbook featuring fairytale-inspired versions of my friends. The FaerieTales character book functions as a paperback accompaniment for a hypothetical game (action RPG, “choose-your-own-adventure”, interactive story, etc.) in which the player can explore a whimsical world, meeting a series of fascinating allies and foes along the way. Unfortunately I’m not a game developer, but hey—a girl can dream.

Every page features a fusion of traditional and digital character illustrations in two distinct styles: a cinematic portrait (left) v.s. gameplay avatars (right). I’ve composed an original narrative and profile for each character which reflect the experiences of their real-world counterpart, intertwined with a “parallel” classical fairytale. The project demanded for an incredible amount of time and love (as well as sheer willpower in navigating Adobe InDesign, which I had very little experience with). Hopefully you may enjoy viewing the pages as much as I enjoyed creating them.

The character book is nowhere close to finished (and with the fact that I may continue featuring more and more friends as well as expanding the realm of FaerieTales, I doubt it ever will be). But that’s what makes things exciting—the idea that I’ll always have plenty more stories to tell.
