Sheffield based freelance designer, Chris Skinner has just announced a new project and revealed the first piece. Titled, “I am a Faun” Chris has transferred his art to wood and it’s damn good. Here is what he had to say about the project.
This piece developed from the results of some tests I did engraving my recent Labyrinth commission onto wood. Unfortunately the Labyrinth print would have needed too much work and engraving quite large for it to be successful so I decided to put that energy into a new illustration. I wanted to keep with the fantasy vibe which lends itself to natural materials like wood and in Pan’s Labyrinth the Faun is part of the forest and I thought he would be a great fit for this first release. – Chris Skinner
