Big eyes are my thing, if you hadn't noticed. After all the eyes are the windows to the soul, and so much emotion can be seen in them. Currently I'm working on several projects at once, featuring my POP eyes. The first ona is finished, and has found a new home...
The Promise of Motherhood
A friend of mine was pregnant, and I wanted to surprise her with an illustration I thought she would appreciate. This illustration is called the Promise.
Feathers have a symbolic meaning to this friend, so they had to become part of my illustration. I subtly added the text 'I will shelter you, and catch you if you fall' to the feathers. A promise which, to my opinion, describes what it means to be a mom.
I'm glad to say my friend likes the illustration very much, and she will be hanging it in the nursery soon.
Big eyes POP booklets
Each and every illustration and painting I create, can cost quite some time to make them. However, I started creating a series of POP booklets. These booklets of 7x7cm will become one-of-a-kind mini notebooks, completely created by hand. The covers of course will be adorned with my big eyed characters.
The first two covers are finished. Left you see the Black Swan, and on the right a mermaid. Many will follow, because I can create these reasonably quickly...
Speaking of mermaids, I also started on my next Munny figure!
Munny World Mermaid
After finishing my first Munny figure, I've pondered what figure I would create next. I already started on a second figure featuring my illustration Masks. But it will take some time to finish this one, because I'm literally creating masks made of polymer clay.
However, I didn't want to have all these white Munny World figures go to waste, and so I've started working on figure number three. This one will be a mermaid, based on the POP booklet you see above.
She's coming along nicely. The first details have been added, but my guess is she will take some more hours to complete. She will be completely painted with acrylic paint.
So very soon you will find a separate page on my website, featuring my 3D figures, with this mermaid's final result. I will keep you posted!
