It’s been a year in the making, but yesterday I finally finished enough images to complete this short trailer for Half-World (coming March, 2017).
As a collection of artwork blending original hand-drawn graphics and elements from thousands of photographs begun in 2015, Half-World explores the idea that magical people, places and things are around us every day… sitting in plain sight yet veiled in proportion to the openness of our minds, eyes and other senses. Since the veil tends to drop for most people each December… with the otherworldly magic of the Yuletide misting in from the skies and hills like a dream awakened… Half-World was envisioned to help the veil drop even more.
Each image in Half-World (as reflected in the main part of this trailer) is based around the idea of a carnival… coming to town to set up its tents and attractions and beckon people inside (and beyond) to discover what they may.
