Here’s another multiplane picture from college days.
It illustrates the climactic scene from Oscar Wilde’s fairy tale, “The Nightingale and the Rose”, and below is the illustration I did for the same scene in “Oscar Wilde: Stories for Children” which I illustrated about five years after leaving college.
It is interesting to compare the two pieces. I think it was a good move for me to ditch the experimental medium. Funnily enough though, I am looking into doing a 3d illustration with an Irish company that has developed amazing 3d print technology.
Again, I have to say that, much as I love Oscar Wilde, the subject of a little bird sacrificing itself on a rose thorn is something I would think twice about presenting to my own kids.
