The Stuff of Nightmares

 
The playthings of the innovent can be rather creepy at times. I created those drawings after visiting a exhibition called 'The Stuff of Nightmares' in the V&A Museum of Childhood in London, which is a really recommendable place to go. For the exhibition the Front Room Gallery had been transformed into a sinister forest by local schoolchildren working with artists. It became the dark setting for a re-telling of the Brother Grimm's Fundevogel and explored the darker side of the child's  imagination.
It was very interesting and gave me a lot inspiration for my latest project.
