The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

00734408

I love patterns as a way of storytelling. I thought it would be fun to tackle one of my childhood favorites -- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

The story is full of rich themes and imagery, but I thought an interesting one was the transformation of Winter to Spring.

Update

Here's a couple of sketches incorporating some of the imagery from the story

I was really liking the winter palette and thought it captured a really familiar part of the story, so I decided to focus there -- I would love to play around with the winter to spring idea in the future, though. Also, I think it could be fun to do something more with the turkish delight motifs...

I really enjoyed the class and 2-week challenge. Thanks a bunch, Elizabeth and Megan!

Update

There was something kinda bugging me about the flow and balance, so I tweaked it a bit:
