Still on the year's Carnegie Dinosaur toy prototypes. Alas, I cannot show them to you yet. Safari, the company producing them, very much wants the subjects to remain a surprise until they are released for public consumption. But thereafter, I’ll post some in progress images, and further develop the Carnegie Museum Dino page. Meantime, here’s the Little Mermaid. You likely saw her before, but... I aim to do more with Hans C. Andersen tales over the next while.
A detail from a Snow Queen in progress, oil on canvas. I wanted to capture the remote nature of the character as she appears to me, chill and numinous. The boy (Kay, in the Hans Christian Andersen story) is a near likeness of my father as a child. He fled this world poignantly early, and this tale felt fitting.
