For this particular project I was able to explore old tales and folklore and gave a new leash of life to them. I chose Mythical Beasts because I believe there is something incredible about old tales that have dated back for thousands of years, and it has been interesting to see just how far into history they keep coming up. It was particularly interesting to see that they always had the same description and tales with only minor changes but come from very vast cultures.I wanted to bring and revive this, with the intention of bring the basic knowledge to a young audience.
The project eventually turned into Trump Cards or Collector cards, which would hopefully add a sense of fun by making it into this. And a Book to hold and store these cards in. I enjoyed the ability to use different media but keeping in mind that young children are attracted to bright colours. Drawing, painting, print and photography and model making, where part of the main elements used in this project
