pulcinello *2

These little fellows were for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY.
They would have appeared in the 'Puppets' sequence when the hopeful families arrive at the factory.
However, the director wanted a spoof on 'Little World': an elderly entertainment at Disneyland.

You have a remarkable ability to extract 3 dimensions out of a flat drawing.
I wouldn't even know where to begin to do such a thing.

It's true.
I love the fact that looks flat and graphic but so full of volume.

I have forgot what I was about to say... Ah-ha!
These are just great. Almost all of your works have the quality of good poster; clear message in clear form.
Once again: respect!

me too miras....I often forget what I was about to say.
er....oh, yes. I wanted these characters to look clearly 3 dimensional because they would have been made into animatronics or simple puppets that could be jiggled around on sticks.
Thanks to all for your kind remarks.

Absolutely beautiful, you have your own fantastic technic to place the lights and shadow, I could recognize a Limbolo at the Louvre!

Tis a shame they didn't use your approach, the 'It's a Small World' parody was done to death in SHREK.

limbolo said...

Yes but in this kind of megawatt pop movie a lot of it is about you know already.

limbolo said...

that should be 'WHAT you know already'....
and what you know is: they chuckled at SHREK so they'll probably chuckle at this.

yours sincerely,
biting the hand that feeds.
