James and the Giant Peach

Giant fruit lands on skyscrapers while mutated, fully-clothed insects go on a grand adventure with a young, British boy. Sounds like another ho-hum day in New York City.
Oh and here are some concept sketches. There are actually far more bug sketches that are stashed away in some sketchbook because bugs turned out to be awfully fun to draw. Little boys? Not so much.

You know, this may sound kind of weird. But my favorite part about this piece is that shadow over the top of the skyscraper. There's just something very perfect about it that makes me tingle with delight. I mean, aside from the fun characters of course. Anyway, I think this is one of your strongest pieces. Great job!

I think that shadow has gotten more positive comments than anything else I've ever done. So it's really not THAT weird of a comment.
