Old Wives Lies

ILLUSTRATION

I was asked to participate in a group show in Brooklyn, NY called "Old Wives Lies." The Theme was to create works inspired by the childhood relationship with folklore and specifically the misinformation, neuroses and habits we have as a result. 

The piece I created is based on the tale of Baba Yaga, a Slavic folktale of a supernatural woman whose house stood on chicken legs.

Here's an early sketch, with a variant thumbnail in the corner.

The final house gained a second story, even witches like a room with a view.
