I think the Rumpelstiltskin is one of the Brothers Grimm’s more ambiguous and dark works. There are no clear villains and heroes and only one character is identified by his name.

This foreboding mood inspired me to re-interpret and illustrate the story in a noir-influenced fashion whilst retaining the same underlying narrative structure.

The imagery was created to accompany the story in a layout that delivers the intended sequence effectively.
