I just came across this quirky advent calendar. Children are invited to colour in a different elf each day on the run up to Christmas (I like it un-coloured however!). What struck me is that it is another example, similar to the experimentation I have been doing with the ghosts and dinosaurs, to try and depict a scene without following the traditional rules of perspective and depth.
The limited palette once again adds interest and helps to tie the whole scene together. Despite some trees being large, some small, reindeers apparently ready to jump into the face of an elf or Santa and his friend behind the wheel of a seemingly floating car; the image works. Rules are skewed and the image has depth and interest without using 3 planes.
