Happy Doodle-Day, Mr. Andersen

To honour Hans Christian Andersens' "if-he-would-still-be-alive" 205. Birthday, Google did a series of five different Google Doodles celebrating his most beloved and wellknown fairytales. The pictures are featuring "Thumbelina" aka Däumelinchen. So far I found no compelling inforamtion on the artist behind today's beautiful illustrations.
BTW: Google Doodles are a rather artistic variant of the site's logo, celebrating special events and occasions.

As a child, listening to my father reading Andersen's version of "The Little Mermaid" out to us girls, I got creeped. Thus far, I've visted Andersen's Birthplaye in Danmark and various other sites dedicated to him. Primary, thanks to my mum and her enthusiasme on cultural heritage. But the thought of a girl's disappointment when I expected something more Disney still gives me quite a chill.
