I love vintage storybooks, but that kind of imagery is everywhere, so I wanted to put a bit of a twist on it. Of course, hand-drawn (applied over solid colour blocking) storybook children, with animal heads. Here’s how I got there: I love the complete immersion into imagination when you’re a kid. You can pretend that you’re a bear or a dog for an entire day… and totally commit to the part. Ok, starting to feel like I might be on to something… not quite there yet, but we’ll see where this goes.

*update: so, here we are a couple of years later… it turns out that I had no idea that animal heads on human bodies are literally EVERYWHERE! ok, moving on…
