Heeeeere we go!

The Curse of Maleficent is starting to pop up in stores, which means I should be cleared to start posting art! These are a few preliminary illustrations I did for the publisher to basically apply for the job- they wanted to see what the look and feel of the film would translate into in my style before we threw ourselves at a whole book- so I took a run at it, and they loved it! I learned a lot on those, and the topmost one is still one of my favorite things I’ve done recently.
Since they’re prelims, none of this will show up in the actual book- but I figured the internet might take an interest! Art and the sketchy sketchy process that gets us there. 

If you have NO IDEA what I’m talking about, read my blog here: http://nicholaskole.blogspot.com/2014/04/everything-matters.html

And you can order the book online here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Curse-Maleficent-Sleeping-Beauty/dp/1423197518

And and…you can see it in the hands of a REAL ACTUAL HUMAN CHILD I HAVE NEVER MET here (scroll down): http://www.susansdisneyfamily.com/2014/04/do-you-think-you-know-maleficent-check.html
^which MADE my day and gave me allll the warm fuzzies. Thanks, google alerts!

Caddisfly larvau build protective cases using materials found in their environment. Artist Hubert Duprat supplied them with gold leaf and precious stones. This is what they created.

I have probably reblogged this about a million times now, but how could I not? Everything about this is something I’m into.
