Of Tin Soldiers and Ballerinas . . .

Hans Christian Andersen, how I love you!  "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" has always been a story dear to my heart, so here's a quick pair of ink sketches I made of the main characters, the tin soldier and his little ballerina.

Make sure to listen to Donovan's cover of "The Little Tin Soldier" by Shawn Phillips as well, its a beautiful song that matches the story ever so nicely.  Both versions are great!
