Sea Witch

As a Piscean and long-time lover of all watery things, this is a return to the Sea. Inspired by a wonderful documentary on the sighting of a Giant Squid by a Japanese Naturalist Tsunemi Kubodera, I began reading about the myth of Toyotama-hime, and created this sensual shape shifting self-portrait as the princess on her Selkie-like return to her sea-home.

Ophelia at the Feast of the Pale Man

Completed most of the scene now
Pan's Labyrinth has always been one of my favourite films;
 it's disturbing at times, but also magical and I love it.
The Pale Man is a gruesome and frightening character, but his feast seemed an excellent way to indulge my love of the film and display my collection of miniature foods!

This is a little bit of fun animating the pale man!

Trying out the scene inside the display fits!
