James and the Giant Peach

With The BFG coming to theaters soon, Roald Dahl has been on my mind. I loved his books in Elementary School, and often forget how many great titles fall under his name – Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, to name a few, and of course, James and the Giant Peach. Here’s my interpretation of the most iconic images of the latter, with a real peach and an HO scale boy.

One below has illustrative elements, and I may add more to the others, if I can figure out just how I want to do it. Until then, I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think. And yes, the insects were left out intentionally.

  1. Oh yes – very well done – I love how you’ve created these images. The zany genius of Dahl is very inspiring! :)
