Hansel and Gretel Initial Drawings

These are some initial drawings for the witch's cottage, using rationed items as the design of the house, looking at ration books and spam and other tinned foods.

Adaptation B: Hansel and Gretel

 I will adapt this story into the time period of WW2  basing it from my Grandmother's experience as an evacuee and being sent to live in a house in the woods with a woman she refers to as a witch. 

Adapting the ginger bread house from Hansel and Gretel into a building made from different foods and rationed items of that time, viewing the countryside through child's perspective coming from only knowing food from a tin in the city, to where food comes from and everything seeming to be made of food.
