Fairy Tale

The Fairy Tale project was started a few months ago by Gabrielius Mackevičius and Nerijus Rimkus. Artists add to an on-going fairy tale, supplying a new paragraph and an illustration. It is updated every few weeks and the story heads in a different direction each time. My friend Andrea Wan just added her part of the story!
