Not done an IF for AGES...this one fits the bill perfectly.
What's the story? I was mucking about in summer with new inks and new paper - getting back to basics almost -
and playing around with some garden themes with birds and animals. More for something to frame and exhibit really!
Then I got a call from Simone from Friend &Johnson who wondered if I could do anything for the Chicago Children's Theatre.
One of the plays was "The Selfish Giant" by Oscar Wilde. The Giant has an amazing garden that some children play in and bring to life.
So, I adapted my original ink drawing and added some tiny children and birds via Photoshop to emphasise the difference in scale.
The original is for sale at the Frames Gallery in Perth, Scotland in a show of Scottish Illustrator's work.
