Light Grey Art Lab "Girls - Fact & Fiction"



The “Girls - Fact and Fiction” show opened last friday at Light Grey Art Lab!

I am very honoured to be part in this show (there are so many great artist in it again!!) but it was also very hard to decide for one girl. In the end I went with Ofeliá from Pan’s Labyrinth, which was quite a challenge. When I started sketching I wanted to put so many things from the story in this illustration, but realised the show is about the girl and not so much about the story. So I kept most of the things subtle in the background.

There are also prints of all the pieces from the show available HERE and a Girls book with all the pieces in it: here is a PREVIEW.

This is absolutely beautiful, Maike! Pan's Labyrinth has been one of my favorite movies of all time for, well, a very long time. Your take on Ofelia is fantastic.
