One day, I woke up and got dressed. While putting on my socks, I got so enchanted with the colour scheme that they inspired me to create this illustration.
It has a Russian fairy tale vibe to it, doesn’t it?
Sprookjessok means "Fairy tale sock" in Dutch.
The illustration is set up like a shoebox diorama. By placing the different elements of the illustration on easily distinguishable layers, it feels like you’re looking into a shoebox diorama.
Moral of the story: inspiration is something you need to open yourself up to, not something that automatically comes to you.
