Got my assignment last night for my next illustrator day project. Looks super fun and challenging. The cool thing is that I am picking Hansel and Gretel characters to reinvent. What is really funny tho, is that yesterday I listened to the opera on the radio and got all sentimental. Having lived in Munich as a child this story was a staple in my library.
I actually had the record album as a very young child and the cover terrified me... but the music enthralled me. The story actually terrified me until I became 6/7.
Then I accompanied my family for a day in Central Park (my young stomping ground) and the Upper West Side humming Humperdinck all the way.
Anyhoo... back to character creation...sketching, sketching, sketching. Perhaps I'll lighten the story up a bit. And make it funny? Watch out witch!!!
