Christmas seems like a lifetime ago now, it was only 3 months earlier that we were stuffing our faces of cheese and eating all the chocolate, although with lockdown and staying indoors haven’t we been doing that all year round anyway?
In between the eating, Sky released an original film telling the wonderful tale of young Roald Dahl and meeting his idol Beatrix Potter, starring Dawn French as Beatrix, along with Alison Steadman and Rob Brydon. We had the pleasure of illustrating some of the ads that were going to be used to promote the film.
The Tail of The Curious Mouse took us on a magical journey of what can happen if you follow your dreams, after Roald goes to Beatrix’s house it soon becomes apparent Roald is a very special little boy that will go on to write literature that will shape the future of storytelling.
Whilst visualising this script it was very important for us to capture a the likeness’ of the popular actors in the film. We worked with artists Aaron and Dave who stepped up to this challenge, beautifully depicting the key characters. Once complete, we turned to artist Tony who worked his magic colouring up the visuals, making sure to add to the playful and whimsical feel.
If you haven’t seen this yet, be sure to catch it on Sky Q, it will be sure to put you in a Christmassy mood anytime of the year.
