How does it feel knowing your illustrations will come to life in such a large, 3D way?
During the Christmas season, beloved by all, being able to witness the characters that I created come to life in beautiful spaces is so special. I believe that designing for installations requires a much more diverse approach to the creative process. You need to have an idea of what the actual installation will feel like once it’s completed, and for parts that are hard to imagine with drawings alone, I create 3D models using materials like paper or clay. For some structures, I also use 3D modelling and take pictures from various angles with a camera to review and assess the design. So there’s a lot to it, and as a character designer, I find the experience of creating and seeing them come to life to be incredibly fulfilling and moving.
