For me, I never know when inspiration will strike. Where I will be, or what I will be doing. Whilst waiting for my husband in a shop this week, I picked up this book, and fell in love with the imagery.
Can you imagine how long it will have taken to illustrate a book full of fairy tales by creating these models? Amazing.
And just look at the detail! It feels so whimsical and textural. So delicate yet structrual.
I love the strongly coloured backdrops, they help to bring it to life. I also like the glimpses of colouring within the sculptures, such as pieces of clothing highlighted.
I think this is a project I will save for when I have children. Pick a fairy tale and at least recreate one scene, bring the story to life for them. Although, I could also see it working with Star Wars for my husband!
