Journey to the North Pole is a concept I’m working on for my 2013 Christmas piece. Still at a rough stage developing sketches, thoughts on character design, composition, color and light. The idea was inspired from my personal wishes from childhood of wanting to visit the Northpole. I love the innocence and thought of kids believing in such a place and the whole idea of Santa. My goal with this piece is to create a visual that shows a child (or children’s) dream to journey to the North pole. More to come soon.
Initial sketches and concepts for the flying contraptions. Inspired by carnival structures and steampunk.
More contraption sketches as well as thoughts on the character design.
