Act II Potential

Here's another sketch! This one is for Act II, wherein we find all sorts of strange pitfalls and creatures at home within a mysterious forest.

If the previous entry date doesn't give it away, I'm very bad about updating all my social media at once. Lately, Tumblr has been my go-to solution for posting and reading about artwork. However, now that I remember my sign-in credentials, I'll do my best to remember this humble blogspot.

Since my last post, I have actually made and am making a great deal of things. One fun job is working with a theatre production once more on sets (and occasionally props). It's a whole lot of fun. Here's a look at the approved "Castle Courtyard," which arrived from a mashup of three submitted sketches.

Inside the House

This project was an overdue Christmas present from last year for my girlfriend. She loves miniatures and the movie The Borrower Arrietty, which featured a pretty remarkable doll house. So that was the jumping off point. The interiors and exteriors are all based on memories, locations, and possessions we shared together.

Inside the house are about nine rooms. Everything is made mostly of illustration board, paper, and some wood. Though certain furniture used Sculpey, foam, and cotton. All the color is gouache, acrylic, and colored pencil.

Here's a little tour:

The Library

The Living Room

The Entryway

The Gallery

The Studio

The Hallway

The Master Bedroom

What 2012 Was For Me

It's weird - how limiting a blog post is. I spent over a year working on this, but how do I take an audience along through the journey - all the pitfalls and small successes? Maybe if someone sees it, they'll get it. I'll add more posts about this soon so look out!

I can only show a few images per story, so here are some of my favorites. These ones are from the ebook "Daisy and the Dragons" mentioned in the previous post. It's this kids' book about this young girl Daisy (our eponymous hero) who encounters two dragons while roaming about the countryside. There's a red one and a blue one, and all evidence presents both of them as hostile beasts. However, using her wits, Daisy is able to overcome her individual troubles.

This was a fun project to work on with all the characters and interactions. I made a lot of discoveries and found some new effects with the medium. Plus, Intuary gave me free reign to do whatever I liked with the backgrounds! If you download the app, I think you'll see the play in each page.

That's about it for this story. Check out other RISD '11 profiles to see some more examples of Farfaria illustration! It seems the pool is growing every day. Also, here's a bonus image from the previous ebook. The frog page.
