A Child's Story Deck

A project my mother and I are working on. A deck of cards with all the generic character types from all the fairy tales we could think of-- from king and queen and prince and princess, through servants and messengers and mysterious strangers, right on to animals and magical creatures, faeries and mermaids. Kids can draw cards and act out a story as that character, or take turns drawing and adding to a group story, or use them to write a story, or... well, lots of other things. I've also been submitting some of these to art shows at cons, and have even sold a couple!

All the images are meant to be children and/or childlike, including the animals and magic creatures. The human roles are all done as kids playing dress-up, but the magic creatures are meant to be real.
