it was set in a different life

 Here are another couple of drawings that I have been working on for Buxton Festival's production of James and the Giant Peach. This has been an interesting project to work on. It's quite different to what I'd normally do in that usually my work is all about the detail. This brief is almost opposite to that. These images will be the backdrops to the production and therefore should not distract from everything that is going on on the stage. So, with that in mind, I've tried to create them through colour and atmosphere.

Anyone interested in attending the production can find the details here. I'll be there on for the Monday afternoon (9th of July) performance and the original drawings will be displayed in the foyer throughout. I'll linger in that area before the show so come and say hello.

Thank you guys.

Sam, I've often thought about it but it's a little difficult because I draw in the armchair. I just don't know it would work!
