Elves and the Shoemaker

I'm currently working on poster and program illustrations for a children's theater production of Elves and the Shoemaker. It's the same company I created the Arabian Nights art for last year, Singapore's ITheatre.

This original production has a fun take on the classic Brother's Grimm fairy tale by weaving well known characters from their other stories into the play. Some are the shoemaker's customers. Others just live in his village.

Lots of thumbnails and sketches for this project. Two illustrations done so far, four more to go. Click on any image to enlarge.
