Colorful pictures for dark books
Not long ago I did some of these colours/line experiments. They are just two examples but I was thinking to make some more of them. Eventually experimenting something else as well. Basically the idea was to create covers for children's classic book which are quite violent and scary... therefore not very suitable for nowadays children.
Have you ever thought how scary and depressing were kid's stories in the past? Who never had nightmares after watching or reading Pinocchio for instance?? That's why I thought that "colorful pictures for dark books" would have been a fitting title for a nice project.
Any idea for other old fashioned and gloomy kid's stories?
