I want to share some behind the scenes glimpses of a very special project that came about as a result of this gift I made for my niece Charlotte. A commission from none other than Gotye himself who liked my felt rendition of the creature from the Bronte animated video enough to want one of his own
And not just one mind, but a whole set. I made sketches from different moments from the video for Walter to chose from and based on these I went on to create a series of one of a kind felt hoop art pieces.
In order to keep them unique I didn’t make any digital drawings or files. I cut the templates from original hand drawn sketches each time, with occasional help from the photocopier. No two are exactly the same- nor can they be precisely replicated.
Gotye has shared a gallery of photos of the finished pieces on his flickr group here. And I’ll share some of my own on here next week. I loved working on these so very much. I can’t wait for you to see how they turned out!
