My First Sleeping Beauty

This is fairly different to what I usually do, but it's for a competition I saw on the Talenthouse website. The brief is to design a poster for the children's production of 'My First Sleeping Beauty' for the English National Ballet.

I tried to make it look as appealing to children as possible, whilst still capturing the essence of the classic story. If you want to support me, just click here.

Let me know what you think :)
