Prickle Britches

Prickly roses, entangling barbs, zigzagging webs, exotic spinsters, capricious pussies, counterfeit mothers, and babbling battologists conspire to seduce a young girl through a deliriously surreal journey. This digitally composited and painted animation is a loose adaptation of the sleeping beauty tale, inspired by The Annotated Classic Fairy Tales edited by Maria Tatar, Struwwelpeter by Dr. Heinrich Hoffman, and the story of Little Briar Rose or “Dornroschen” by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.
