A.C. Cover and Fossils
For my next project I want to illustrate Camille Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals. I began with Fossils, being one of the most popular pieces in the series. I began with a cow skull:
And wanted to decorate it with pattern in the Day of the Dead style and maybe make this a running theme throughout the project:
But they ended up looking too much like gimp masks, so I abandoned that idea and moved on! To dinosaurs and proper fossils, more of which are to come.
I have also been playing with ideas for Aquarium, one of the other most recognised pieces of the series.
