Reaching for a Star

Reaching - 8x10 Print
My latest print from Fairy Land. I originally drew the outlines of this fairy for an entry in a t-shirt design contest, but I didn't like her for that, so I turned it into a colored illustration.

I never planned on printing it, but I posted it to my personal facebook page and immediately got requests for it, so I printed some up and now I'm adding it to my etsy shop.
