Introduction

The idea for this image came from a discussion with my good friend Nicolas Reytet (aka Waugh) about the little people of fairyland. I've always loved the imaginary little world populated by goblins, laminaks, gnomes and elves of all kinds. The artist Jean-Baptiste Monge inspires me a lot when it comes to creating an image based within this fantasy theme. I have a lot of books with his work in them and I think he might have been touched by a fairy when he was born!


For this project I started by doing some sketches (Fig.01), which is something I like to do because even if the end result is quite different from the original sketches, they provide me with a guide for the construction of the image. After I had done that I went into the forest to take some photographs that I could use as references (Fig.02 - 04). The photos helped me when I was thinking about the composition of the final image.
