Disturbing Blurbs in Artful Words.
So caught up were 2J Art in their wicked re-imagining of classic fairy tales that they almost forgot the graphical sorcery skills they acquired along their journeys. Like alchemists experimenting with their art materials, Mr. Williams’ enchanted designers honed their lettering and composition abilities, each developing a unique illustration style to bring their darkly beautiful characters to life.
A huge thank you to Ms.McWilliams for her wonderful fairy-tale inspired brief and endless enthusiasm, and congratulations to the students for bravely following their fearful imaginations.
Mr Williams.
