Illustrations for

Grimm Tales

The series of illustrations was intended to show the atmosphere of despair when crying for help is useless.

 

The characters are modernized with the features of the heroes of director Oliver Stone. The simple and strange cruelty in the retelling of the Brothers Grimm is similar to the primitive rough morality of the American cinema of the 80s, so the film "Natural Born Killers", where these qualities are brought to the point of absurdity, served as the main reference. Bumpy soft and sticky shapes are homage to various mechanical morphing, special effects from horrors of that time.

The series created in 3D imitates the effect of engraving, as a tribute to illustrations to the original fairy tales of the 17th century and to its ridiculous explicit Photoshop effects that symbolize our recent era.
