Jack & The Beanstalk
This illustration captures the moment when Jack attempts to rescue the golden harp from the clutches of the Giant Monster. It was fun to create an image that used both design and expression to depict a scene from the story of a brave boy who enters a Giant's castle in order to capture some of his possessions. Instead of a traditional giant, I decided to incorporate some Greek mythology and make him more of a Cyclops. Furthermore, the golden harp was inspired by Greek sculpture. I, myself posed for the character of Jack. Finished in watercolor and pencil.
