Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Posted by campbell January 23rd, 2011


A new illustration in the Snow White series. Snow is found, fast asleep in one of the seven dwarves beds.

I had been thumbing through a great book on minerals, crystals and meteors when thinking of this project, so I drew heavily from those shapes, colours and textures. The dwarves in this retelling are living rocks, expert miners and weapon smiths. They run a lucrative operation crafting the finest armor and weapons for kingdoms and warlords.

It would be fun to put this together as an illustrated book. One full page illustration for a full page of text.
We can dream.

Almost there

I am so close to finishing off my illustration portfolio to send off to publishers. These two pieces need scanning and cleaning up in photoshop and then it’s ready to go. This year is going to be the year of making opportunities, chasing goals, working hard.

There are so many inspiring illustrators out there around my age who are hustling and making inroads. Meg Hunt, Emily Carroll, Vera Bee have been three that have really caught my attention recently. They have such enthusiasm, professionalism and energy to their illustrations. Having the opportunity to watch artists professional practices develop online is such a treat.

(As a side note, I don’t know how those three get anything done, they seem to be constantly tweeting and blogging. Or is that getting things done? In fact all my favorite creatives seem to spend a lot of time on twitter. Which is nice for me.)
