After moving to Norway, I found out that many people here still carry the names "Hans" and "Grethe" which are proper adult versions of the names of the protagonists. Makes me feel closer to the origins of the story and wonder if there were witches living in the Scandinavian pine forests of today.

Had fun doing this and hope you like it too! :) Illustrated with HB pencil and coloured in Adobe Photoshop.
P.S. Do you know that HB pencils in Norway are darker than HB pencils in Singapore? Their HB is almost equivalent to 2B in Singapore and it is the norm to use HB here. In Singapore, I grew up in a society where 2B pencils (darker and softer) are more commonly used.
