ROALD DAHL by Mr. Hawthorne

I think this is done... maybe.

More info on this piece, and the process behind it, here.

Didn't know this story from Dahl ... I really should read it. The picture is inspiring.

thanks, mike, for bringing the roald dahl adult creepy.

Mike Hawthorne said...

Mathieu - Thanks! Check out the story, you'll like it.

Tom - Man, thank YOU. Really love this week's theme. I wanted to do Fantastic Mr. Fox, and had a great idea, but thought doing one of his shorts would make more sense since you guys would do amazing work on the kid's stories.

i'd still like to see the the mr. fox!

Mike Hawthorne said...

I'd like to do it myself. I have the damned thing, the exact moment, in my head. Just need time...


Ron Salas said...

I love this, man! I knew it was going to be great and you didn't disappoint. Now, I just have to read the story. ;)

BTW I thought about doing the Twits. It's a perfectly great kids gross-out story. But I picked something else.

Mike Hawthorne said...

Was it a booger? Cause Mr. Twit would have picked a booger! ;-)

I was tempted to do a piece based on The Twits too. Love the image of Mrs. Twit sailing through the sky on balloons tied to her neck/hair/arms.

With Dahl, there is basically TOO much to choose from!

Thanks, man!

Mike Hawthorne said...

Thanks, man! Love your BFG piece!

Your illustration is so awesome that now I am compelled to go check out this MAN FROM THE SOUTH story, that's how awesome it is :)

Ahh, you're gonna love it!
