I host a weekly illustration class with students at a school in Hong Kong, and last week I had the brilliant idea doing a class inspired by the work of Javier Perez. Basically we just grabbed a bunch of random stuff and turned them into other random stuff. Here's some of their pieces:
My daughter's favourite book right now is Hickory Dickory Dock (she's 5 months old; she mostly just likes to chew on it). Anyway, I've have nursery rhymes on my mind a lot lately, and I had an idea of drawing a few of them with surprise endings, starting with one of the most non-sensical of them all - Hey Diddle Diddle.
When you break it down, this nursery rhyme has it all - cats playing music, kitchenware frolicking through open fields, cows performing fairly spectacular feats, dogs laughing - and this is just what is being mentioned, who knows what else is happening outside of the scene.
Coming soon (maybe) - Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, and Yankee Doodle
