I've finally taken the opportunity to customize one of my most favorite designer toys, and not only one, but SEVEN Omens! I could not help myself when Coarse released the "Omen - Help!" series. They were just screaming out to me to be customized! The plan was to have these finished before Christmas (!) Yeah that didn't happen did it! I am to much of an optimist, or was, that is. I have now learnt that I can not put a time limit on anything after having two kids. I have to take each day as it comes, and if I'm lucky I get to do my work one day a week. No wonder these took so long to finish.
These are the most favorite platform I've worked on and they're also the customs I am the most proud of ever. I rarely value my work very high, I guess that's just part of me being very critical when it comes to my own creations, but these I value very high. My best work to date! And I'm not afraid to say so.
As you can see I was inspired by the different stages of day and night. I don't find the day very mesmerizing at all, but when it comes to the sun rising and setting it takes my breath away many times. And even though the night terrifies me, I also find it extremely enchanting and beautiful.
So I searched the internet for colour palettes that would suit my mysterious little bird creatures and these were the ones I chose in the end. I also wanted to add a complementary precious metal to each one of them. I ended up using gold for dawn, bronze for dusk and silver for twilight.
My greatest struggle were the "Twilight's". As I am used to working with brighter colours and pastels, the dark colour scheme was very daunting. The great thing about it is, that it has opened up my mind towards darker colours and I'll make sure to use them more often in the future. They look so enchanted and that wouldn't have worked without the deep dark tones.
These darlings will be on sale from Friday the 23rd of March at 9.00 PM BST, over at my BigCartel store as per usual. I know that the release is further away than I normally then to put them. I wanted to make sure that everyone gets a chance to prepare themselves for this release as they've already received and awful lot of attention.
All of them are up for preview with prices in my STORE. So head on over, have a look and prepare yourselves for what will probably be my biggest release of 2018! I don't really want to see them go (hahaha) but an artist and her family's got to eat too, so there we are...... I shall let them spread their wings!
