Title: "Le Jardin et la Fantasie" / "The Garden and the Imagination" / "Il Giardino e la Fantasia"
This is a one page project I just sent over to Switzerland for and international competition in Lausanne. The theme was "Le Jardin" ("The Garden").
With this work I wanted to give the feeling of what a great place the house garden is: even a small one can become an immense forest, with the power of imagination.
So, the kid can easily imagine himself as a fully equipped space hero, meeting the imaginary people and creatures who inhabit his fantasies.
Balloons' translation is:
Kid: There! Our champion prepares for the cosmic launch!
Mom: But stay in the backyard, great space hero!
Kid: No problem, Mom!
This page was completely colored with acrylics and a bit of letraset pantone markers. Plus, most of the light effects were made using a white extrafine Mitsubishi/Osama UniPosca marker (gouache pen).
If you are interested, at this [link]
you can find a bit of the process from sketch to colors.
EXTRA: there's a small element which is a tribute to a big Animation Studio in this page... Can you spot it?
