Just a little portfolio of records that I have done specifically for Tiny Stories 2011.
If you like my style (digital inked, sometimes mixed media) and have a story that you want me to illustrate, just drop me a comment on this album
Concept art for tiny book of tiny stories vol 1 book cover. I wanted the book cover to have a similar feel to tiny book of tiny stories 2010's cover but also make it so that the composition would work for subsequent volume as a series of collectible books. In subsequent volume, it would have different tiny stories' images bursting out from the same book.
NOTES: i will edit this further once we know what stories are selected. For now, these are some of my favorite illustrations/stories. Just one more thing, I wil try to animate this too..:) and make some pattern..
My visual interpretation of reciprocate tiny story by inkedcanvas. My concept is about how the girl reciprocated. She is smirking because revenge is sweet.
Sometimes you can be in a room full of people, and yet feel very much alone..
You can also help me revise this story to go with this visual.
My visual interpretation of the music box tiny story by stueykeane.
PS: love it when I can create tiny story using existing record from other collaboration. Everyone should give it a go.
A slightly naughtier version of midas illustration that I did earlier. :) This one..He looks torn! Should he or shouldn't he? Is this too risque for harper collins?
My visual interpretation of Matt Conley's As It Were tiny story. I was inspired by children's ability to let their imagination run wild with a such simple everyday object.
This actually applies to all hitrecorders when looking at simple records like a plain doodle or even a ditty or musical chords, we should let our imagination run wild and use those records to make bigger and better things.
Obviously I am having too much fun making tiny stories cut out. Even if they don't get selected as final artwork, at least I am a happy girl! :)
My visual interpretation of sexy tiny story about the weather by day glo.
This visual can be interpreted as the gentleman way or the saucy way. Nothing is sexier than a pair of lighting legs wearing heels. Please "heart" this if you want to see more of papercut stories.
PS: From far, the legs actually look like lightning bolts.
The outsider stood beside. The little low-tide, as it dried. And he sighed as he decided, "We'd be better off inside."
NOTES: More papercut style to illustrate a story.. hmm.. I should start a collection of papercut tiny story telling..
My visual interpretation of tiniest story. Instead of drawing something, I was inspired by traditional paper cutting style using positive/negative space to create imagery.
NOTE: all done in Photoshop
This love and reincarnation interpretation is for all the hopeless romantic! My "bicycle" trilogy is now complete! :)
PS: Can't believe the same few words and few people on bicycles can tell three different story..
My visual interpretation of the RegularJOE's tiny story. The first thing that came to my mind was mismatched expectations in a love relationship.
another interpretation of the story ..haha :)..yeah..he's doing another chick behind her back. This one is for gleefulmalice..
Bicycle rules! :)
The physician’s wife was told that an apple a day kept the doctor away.
Each evening she would eat two apples (just to be safe).
But much to her dismay, her husband still kept coming home.
This is REmix RECord using bryn_haz's story and eNgma's drawing. I tweaked the strawberry to become an apple. I think this image is good enough to capture reader's attention without giving too much away.
One day before breakfast, an orange rolled off the counter and escaped its fate, bouncing happily through the kitchen door.
Filled with hope, the egg followed.
i m a sucker for cute food doodle!
The Sun is such a lonely star. Whenever he comes out to see his friends, they all disappear.
taking a break from my usual cut out work.. going back to old school doodling
This record is a response to Metaphorest's amusing Pelican collaboration which I have just discovered and adore! I went through all my old records and found that most of them are in black/white which is very unlike me. Needed to do something in color so badly and here you go!
The mumble bee had a fuzzy buzz. When he tried to say 'honey', it came out all funny...
When he bumps into the girl he loves incredibly, he gets nervous and mumbles his word.
Today, the sky's filled with the sun's glow. Our shadows slink closer together and, behind our backs, hold hands.
This is REmix RECord using siibyline's a blot story and brick wall photo by chariot13.
My Visual interpretation of The Truth About Kissing tiny story by likeadisco.
Sigh..I don't want the 25th july deadline to end cause I haven't done enough paper cut stories...
The world of tiny stories pattern background. This pattern is seamless and you can tile it to make even bigger pattern.
Just something to sum up our work with tiny stories. :). If I left out your work on the resources, please let me know.
Do check out how this pattern can be applied on a book cover - http://hitrecord.org/records/456624
Few mentioned the pattern should be inside lining of a bookcover and some say gift wrapping from the pattern. I say REMIX both idea and we get this. Now I really want this on my coffee table!! :o)
I love what Eskapurla did with the propaganda poster. So this is my take on the propaganda poster. Even a dog believe in tiny stories.
This is for the sleepyhead tiny story's request. inspired by the propaganda baby poster, I put these babies into hitrecord pattern jammies and turn them into insomniac. Maybe they are planning a revolution.
PS: Mini Maxx makes a special cameo appearance in this tiny story.
Marke goes street! What started with me just wanting to do a tiny stories pattern hoodie became this remix. Haha..
Tiny stories inspired rap, anyone? :o)
