I have a creepy drawing in the Wall Street Journal today. It accompanies a book review of “Snow White Must Die,” by Nele Neuhaus, a new police procedural set in a village outside of Frankfurt. The book is about a series of killings with some Snow White parallels.
I wanted to keep things menacing but vague, with some fairytale-esque colors. Turns out I do a pretty good job on creepy topics? I seem to get them a lot.

First assignment for my class on Fairy Tales! At the end of Snow White in the Grimm version, she forces the witch to dance to death in red hot iron shoes…not quite Disney.

Maybe we should be focusing less on goldilocks and more on why Mama and Papa don’t sleep on the same bed anymore.
