I always like to have a musical track or album to inspire me to create a certain piece of art. For the 'Winter Elves' series I've been listening to Tchaikovsky's 'The Nutcracker' score.
I love ballet music, and recently when I've been listening to 'The Nutcracker' album. The music has made me imagine a kingdom of elves in a wintery forest, where the elves are preparing for a huge Winter Solstice celebration. While I'm drawing these elf characters, I like to listen to 'The Nutcracker' album on repeat, and every track makes me imagine a different scene with the elves in the forest.
I can't wait to share the latest elf 'Nathronniel' with you this Friday. If you would like to be the first to see these elves, please sign up to my mailing list.
