Toy Art

Today I photographed some toys in the snow.

This is something I've been wanting to do for ages but never seem to get around to actually doing it. Having finished a what I believe to be a rather exceptional manuscript last night, I was feeling inspired. I gathered some favorite pieces of my collection scattered throughout the house and braved the frost bite and tundra. With frozen fingers, I arranged a few setups and snapped a ton of images.

My idea is to mix them with drawings and photos I've taken to create fairy tale worlds. Look forward to a lot of these in the coming months. I'm sure to discover lots of interesting characters and stories hiding in the pictures. Playing with toys is just part of the job.
