'Kirby's Epic Yarn'- on the Nintendo Wii
After discussion with Phil and going back to the beginning it may be the case that I went in the direction of the wrong textures. (I did previously explore creating a physical little set with a mix of plasticine and cardboard.) And after being shown the award winning short 'An Audience With' I realise that this is the technique I've really needed all along. A mix of fully resolved 3D objects, insinuated shapes, hand drawn toon-lines and textures. It's downright brilliant and reminds me somewhat of the styling used for 'Little Big Planet.' And also heads int he direction of the 70's episodes of Paddington Bear.

Its this mixture of roughed up textures that really works well with Shel's original works. his inky nonsense illustrations suit an environment like this much more than that of patchwork fabric. I also need to rethink whats in the attic space. Perhaps running through the entire book of nonsense poetry and taking objects within the poems, or perhaps creating port-key symbols to represent them. This space after-all is essentially a conduit into his world of nonsense...

Time to rethink that space, its content and redraw (a bit quicker than last time!) To concepts!!!
