"The Six Sillies"

Here are some sketches I recently made for the old fairy tale "The Six Sillies." The story is about a young man who asks for a lady's hand in marriage only to find that she, her mother, and her father are the three silliest people he has ever seen. He then leaves, saying he will return to marry the girl once he finds three people sillier than they.

I liked the story myself. It's short and unlike many fairy tales, no one gets mauled and eat'n. It's just about a young man and woman and enough silliness for everyone.
