Bedford illustrator, David Litchfield, has seen his drawings brought to life at the ‘Fairy Tales’ exhibition at the Discover Children’s Story Centre, in Stratford.
Visitors to the fully immersive exhibition will be transported into the magical world of The Three Bears, Jack and his Beanstalk, Anansi and his stories, and many more, all created by author Ross Montgomery, drawn by David Litchfield and then built as three-dimensional life-size creations.
Aimed at 0 – eight-year-old (and their grown-ups), the exhibition opened on 15 February
David said, “I’ve been working on the project for the past nine months or so, designing the characters and settings that have then been turned into big, 3D objects and sets.
“When I had a sneak peek behind the scenes it was a little surreal to walk through something that started as a drawing in my sketchbook.”
Competition: win a family ticket to the immersive Fairy Tales exhibition by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the answer to the following question: Which author did David collaborate with on the project? Please put: Fairy Tales as the email subject. The closing date is Friday 27 March.
