submission to Neil Gaiman’s ’ A Calendar of Tales’, July
erm…another one from my favorite tale.. Took me a while to come up with this one because it’s my favorite tale… I’m very much familiar with the dangers of escapism thru the written words, whether you are the writer or the reader. It can be really awesome to be insanely immersed in a make-believe world, it’s the tiny breaks of sanity that’s horrifying to me.
Anyways, tried to encompass the whole story in one illustration. I’m not sure if I succeeded. Submitted to blackberry as ‘universe of words’ initially cuz I couldn’t think of a title. This is the 3rd version I submitted, I believe. The words are from July tale, plus I added some of my silly words too.
Sad that I didn’t complete the calendar. I already have concepts for the missing months but my hand hurts. My fingers are throbbing!!! I was on photoshop for long hours with little breaks. Still, I didn’t complete the calendar.
Still, this was FUN!! Thanks :D
