Once Upon Again Preparation

These are some of the sketches I’ve been working on in preparation for a new work I’m undertaking for the Pack of Wolves’ next exhibition – ‘Once Upon Again’ – next year.

The drawings are inspired the old Russian folk tale about a young girl called Vasilissa who encounters an old witch know as the Baba Yaga. As with many old fairy tales there are different versions of the Baba Yaga story and I’ve taken my inspiration from different versions of these to produce the sketches pictured here which include a cat weaving threads, a dog eating bread and Vasilissa running away with a skull lantern.
