DYREHAVEN KITE FESTIVAL






Over the last few weeks I have been In Copenhagen, Denmark, It Is really an amazing place to stay and investigate, while staying here found out that every year towards the end of October they have a kite flying festival in Dyrehaven. Dyrehaven or officially called Jægersborg Dyrehave
which translates as the "Deer Garden" it is a truly fantastic place, the landscape is so varied with large swaps, dense forests and grassy hills, which of course are perfect for Kite flying. So with this event in mind I really wanted to make a kite of my own and make a drawing that can fly, here are a few pictures of the process and some of the event. I wanted the image to be as strong as possible and try to work with the over all kite shape but not let it dominate the image so I choose a translucent plastic as the kites shape as the structure then built the image on top. This also allowed me to build off the main structure in this case the mans legs and arms which look amazing and animated in the wind. I will hope fully be able to attend the event next year and would love to make more kites for the event. I would also like to thank Cecilie as she has been very patient and helped me sew the kite together, Thank you Cecilie.

Huge fan of the blog!

I'm an animator trying to transit to the illustration and design world. I'd love to try to get in the RCA communication and design course and I'm working on a portfolio right now.
I have few stuff on my blog, but if you have time, any tips are very very welcome.

Thanks,
