A CHRISTMAS TALE ✧ HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A PROSPEROUS 2018
Here’s to never losing the thrill of starting out on a new adventure; here’s to a world full of dreams and hopes. Always celebrating the miracle of life and giving thanks for this gift.
Continuing with our Christmas illustrations from two years ago, MDG Almond has illustrated this short Christmas Story. We hope to be able to connect with you all at this very special and magical time.
“Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes,
Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long.
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad.
The nights are wholesome. Then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
SO HALLOW’D AND SO GRACIOUS IS THAT TIME.” (William Shakespeare, HAMLET)
Our Christmas Story has four illustrated scenes, using an excerpt from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
We enter the Forest of Dreams (first image in the gallery) where we fly over the Village of Hope (second image in the gallery), taking the Path of Excitement (third image in the gallery), until we arrive at the Home of Life (fourth image in the gallery). A series of symbolic images that mirror the journey through life; we should never give up on making the dreams we yearn for a reality, celebrating the miracle of life with our loved ones.
The third from last illustration was created as a 2018 New Year design from MDG Almond.
The final two images are card illustrations we designed for the law firm, TRENTO Estudio Legal.
The illustrations are hand drawn using Photoshop and a tablet (wacom). The video is edited using iMovie.
