#MarchMeetTheMaker – Day 1
Favourite to Make. I love to make little fairies and elves, that’s what you will usually find on my studio desk. But I also love to make miniature worlds and buildings (such as my tiny town #whistlestopthistle), as well as scenes from my favourite stories. I love to tell stories in an unusual way, turning fairy tales into what I like to call ‘puppet illustrations’ or ‘stop motion illustration’. I create the sets, figurines and props on a miniature scale, then compose them in a way that I hope captures the tone of the story.
This is a sneak peek of Alice in Wonderland falling down a rabbit hole. I made this for a competition and the hole is filled with soil and bark collected in my hometown of Ripon, where Lewis Carroll was inspired by the gypsum sinkholes there, and a young girl called Mary Badcock who was thought to be the model for the original Alice illustrations.
