Nursery Rhyme Illustration

Goal

To create an illustration that encompasses the nature of the nursery rhyme “Three Blind Mice.”

Approach

Watching videos of mice moving helped improve my sketches. For illustrating the farmer’s wife, the importance of bringing a sense of danger into the scene took priority.

Results

An overhead view captures the scene where the farmer’s wife is chasing the mice. The three mice are positioned to form a triangle, symbolizing danger, while atmospheric perspective keeps the main focus within the room.
I am currently working on an animation to support the illustration. Below is a work in progress concept.
