Fairytale project

Rapunzel, Rapunzel

Images produced after reading about 'Rapunzel Syndrome' a condition when a person twists their own hair, pulls it out, and shallows it. A 'Trichobezoar' is formed in the stomach and will have an extending tail into the intestine. The images are for a project focused around fairytale and folklore.


First in the series of three. I scanned my head into the scanner (I suggest it, it's quite fun) and then edited the images in Photoshop. This is part of the fairytale and folklore project.

Should of made the shelf - M. S. Corley

I have been a fan of the Harry Potter series since I was a little girl, I have the most battered copies of the books on my bookshelf at home. A trip to America when I was 10 started my obsession if you like! Having bought The Philosophers Stone in the U.S it had a different cover and name: The Sorcerers Stone.
The illustration to the British cover is similar, fairly bold line, chalky colours.. It is fair to say I have a very inconsistent series, book 1 has an American cover, and book 4 is from a early version of the adult series (U.K)

I dislike this, I want a shiny series that has the same covers and illustrator! I was also very interested to see the illustrations from other countries, of course some are just reprints of the U.S covers or the U.K covers, and I could only find a small picture of the French and German versions, how disappointing! While I was searching for different artworks I found M. S. Corley's version of the book covers.

I think they are amazing, I would happily repurchase the entire series with his artwork upon the covers. His illustrations really capture the books, I have to admit, I am slightly jealous! However he was contacted by Warner Bros and asked not to produce prints of the artwork, the link to the blog post he put up is here:

What a shame, even more so because Bloomsbury have republished the artwork using Clare Melinsky. Her illustrations are completely different to Corley's, and are on a white background which I have to say.. I dislike. 

I have decided that I am going to try and collect all the different art covers of the series, it is perhaps bit of a waste of time but I like the idea of owning lots of different versions of Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived.

I have yet to see the film aswell, the week after next maybe?
