Technically, it's already Friday and the theme will change soon. I was too excited about this idea that I had - even though the sketch is still very rough, I thought I would share what I have.

The theme for Illustration Friday last week was "Reverse".

I thought about the story of the Princess and the Pea... what if that story had been in reverse? What if, to prove she was a princess, the maid had to sleep under all the mattresses and the pea was placed on top? I think it might be a little harder to prove herself royal!


  1. This is awesome! I love her expression.
    She must have one Strong back!

  2. This ia a good twist in the idea and 'reverse' nice

  3. great idea, your Princess looks ,however,very satisfied !

  4. I love it! The Princess looks very satisfied with her efforts of overcoming the uncomfortable pea situation. Perfect for the topic 'reverse'.
    BTW, I would describe your sketch as 'professionally slick' rather than rough ;)

  5. What a great idea Cali. To me the princess looks like she might have a plan up her sleeve to get out from under those mattresses !!
