“My kids are my two little muses. Whenever I can create art for them, about something that they love and we share together as a family, I’m all about it. Like any parent of small children, we find ourselves as adults, watching way more cartoons than we ever thought we would. But, for me as a consumer of all things visual, taking a fresh look at many of the earlier Disney films has been a blast of inspiration.
For this piece, I took inspiration from an artist I only recently discovered after watching Sleeping Beauty with more mature eyes- Eyvind Earle. Earle was the artistic director for Sleeping Beauty, creating lush and incredibly beautiful environments that were uniquely his in style. I wanted to create an homage to his work, but marry it to one of my kids’ other loves, the work of Hayao Miyazaki.
This Earle/Miyazaki mashup is my humble tribute to two of my favorite artists.”
Foil Variant- 12×24, printed on iridescent foil stock, edition of 25. $70
Foil is notoriously hard to photograph- it’s essentially taking a picture of a mirror, but believe us- these look BEAUTIFUL in person- with the silver shine coming through the body of the Kodomas.
Here’s a detail shot of the foil above- you can see the holographic effect of the paper!
And finally, the wood variant- 12×24, hand-printed on wood panel- edition of 10. $100.
This wood edition is printed on fine 1/4″ birch veneer panel- and the rich wood texture shows through the ink, giving it a beautiful hand-made look.
