The Beanstalk by Reowyn The Beanstalk by Reowyn
Just a sketch, really.
Well, I didn't know what a beanstalk actually looks like so that's totally inaccurate as far as the plant goes.
From the jack and the giant beanstalk story.

This reminds me of the illustrations from Scary Stories to tell in the Dark. There's nothing explicitly horrible about the illustration, and yet it's infused with an ominous potential, so that we the viewer are trapped, waiting for something to go wrong. It reminds me of Hitchcock's description of suspense:
There is a distinct difference between "suspense" and "surprise," and yet many pictures continually confuse the two. I'll explain what I mean.

We are now having a very innocent little chat. Let's suppose that there is a bomb underneath this table between us. Nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, "Boom!" There is an explosion. The public is surprised, but prior to this surprise, it has seen an absolutely ordinary scene, of no special consequence. Now, let us take a suspense situation. The bomb is underneath the table and the public knows it, probably because they have seen the anarchist place it there. The public is aware the bomb is going to explode at one o'clock and there is a clock in the decor. The public can see that it is a quarter to one. In these conditions, the same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene. The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen: "You shouldn't be talking about such trivial matters. There is a bomb beneath you and it is about to explode!


That's what your drawing reminds me of.
