Here are all 9 pieces from my first thesis project!
At the beginning of the semester, I read folktales from around the world and sought out interesting imagery and characters to develop into 9 full page illustrations. As I made each illustration, I did a ton of research into the clothing, symbols, patterns, and other related imagery from the each story’s culture.
I am fascinated by old stories and how they have been passed down and shaped future stories. I learned a lot from this project, but I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface! There is so much more to these unique cultures, and I’ll continue to draw inspiration from them.
For each individually, and some process sketches see the links below:
All are available as prints on my inprnt!
Thank you everyone for your support over the past year! Here’s to a great 2014!
The world is beautiful.
Oh, I need somebody, needed someone I could trust
I don’t gamble, but if I did I would bet on us
Like the Dead Sea
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You’ll never sink when you are with me
Oh, Lord, like the Dead Sea
Whoa, I’m like the Dead Sea
The nicest words you ever said to me
Honey can’t you see,
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea
notsomolly: yes, and I’m still getting the hang of it…I’m guessing there’s not a way to screen shot comments for replies, eh? (this is from my phone…)
