Like lots of other people I am drawn to looking at the work of costume designers. Before my son was a brewer he was a concept artist for computer games and also animated movies. I got to meet some of the people he worked with who now work on the Marvel movies etc and saw some of the wonderful work they did on costume design.
One designer who's work I greatly admire is Michele Carragher This piece is from the movie "The Secret Garden".
The pieces she designed for the Game of Thrones are also outstanding. I have found that she has a book called 'Trace' which is said to be a comprehensive insight into her work. It is now on it's way from the Book Depository. I can see that I better add 'Stumpwork' to my list of techniques I would like to master.
