Colour pencil on paper

Stanley Galton has embarked on a new series of illustrated scenes from beloved childhood fables and folktales. For each story Stanley spends time choosing the key moments to convey in his drawings, breaking apart these ideas into the most iconic visual elements.
Stanley has focussed his efforts on bringing the famous nordic fairy tale of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ to life. Each drawing is meticulously planned in pencil then rendered in a range of dazzling colours. Stanley uses perspective to make images that draw the viewer into his vibrant and idyllic worlds.
