I wanted a bit more challenge with The Looking Glass, so I switched up my style a bit. It’s been quite some time since I’ve used a lighter background and I adjusted my shapes with more curves to create a softer composition. This is 18 x 24.
I was influenced by Polaroid package design from the 60s and 70s while trying to develop the concept and angle from this piece. Polaroid used wonderfully simple designs with bold colors to create a very unique identity at a time when photography was becoming accessible to the common person.
The title comes directly from the season 3 finale of Lost, which was derived from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass.
