it must have been in 2000 when they asked me to
come up with some ideas for THE LITTLE MATCHGIRL.
that hans christian andersen story was always one of my
favourites. so I spend some time in intensive research
about st.petersburg, the architecture, the costumes of
the mid-nineteenth century, and the russian painters from
that era. someone else took over the art direction,
and the character design went into v e r y different
directions. it's not my favourite story anymore.
