Fantasy Animals as Children
This series casts imaginary animals as children, most of them paying energetically. These paintings were originally posted on Facebook under my account as Karen Little.
I just finished creating a series on imaginary animals based on what I saw in cracks and concrete and changing places, where I cast fantasy animals as people. I’ll add to this collection until I produce 15 or so images, then on to the next thing!
The paintings posted here show my most recent one on top. The last one was posted on 12/31/18.
Concept art is based on a cross between one’s imagination and reality. It can get quite detailed when designing for games and picture books. In my case, I just enjoy creating imaginary characters that are a cross between animal and human, or are found in the spirit world of water and cracks.
