These colorful, magical and mysterious landcapes might seem familiar to some of you. A “deja vu” coming from the fact that Peter Staley, their creator, is also the illustrator of the super cute Sweet William logo and website. The images above are made in conjunction with a children’s book that Peter is currently working on. The technique is each detail is painted individually with gouache. They are then scanned into the computer where the artist cuts them out and creates images from there. A fan of Miyazaki‘s movies, Peter is very inspired by nature and by mountainous landscapes in particular. His wonderful fantasy worlds are attractive to both children and adults.
