Cornwall Bigfoot sighted near home of Beast of Bodmin
Bigfoot Studios that is...
I recently started to Twitter & one of my first new contacts made was Trystan Mitchell. A most talented artist & illustrator based in Cornwall running Bigfoot studios.
A quick look at his blog, impressed, immediately promised him I would write about his illustration art upon my own blog.
Upon my return to write said piece...I ventured to the Bigfoot blog & became happily lost in the Bigfoot studio art works.
After an hour not a word had I written.
Transported back to being a child when I would steal my brothers DC Comics & hide under my bed to look at the weird & bizarre illustrations. I found myself spun sideways into the Victorian, steampunk-esque (is there such a word...there is now!) & the clearly influenced by Cornish folklore & landscape illustrations of Trystan Mitchell. Then catapulted into the future-past with visions of what maybe yet to have come ...back then! In particular I liked being able to see some of the draft bones of a design, before being worked up into the finished illustration.
I just kept scrolling back through the inkfunnel blog posts.
I loved the almost caricature but in a pop art, comic book illustration sort of way portraits. As for the Hairy Pothead (I chuckled) ...and I swear to God I had to deal this very week with the creature from Zombie Direct that Trystan had illustrated.
Happy, happy was I looking at all these 'fabutatious' illustration creations. I even downloaded one of his free to print & make paper toys. All set to print it off & spend some time playing with scissors, glue & card...then remembered...I'm supposed to be writing a blog article about Bigfoot studios.
So far better I write less ( I have serious paper toys to make in the laboratory) and you simply follow this link to the wonderful world of Bigfoot studios;-
