Alan Garners, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen has been around since the 1960s and is set not in some fantasy land, but in the Cheshire countryside, around the old mining area of Alderley Edge. I found it easy to identify with each of the landmarks identified in the book, as my later school years where spent in and around the Edge.
This web page has probably been the most painful of all the pages I have produced so far. Caught between my fascination for Responsive web design and fine art I decided to try to produce a responsive illustration depicting some of the characters from the book. This illustration would then adapt depending on the device it is being viewed on.
In hindsight this was probably a little ambitious, hence the time it has taken to produce. An unexpected by product of all this labour is that the illustration has been displayed at a 2 exhibitions, Art at the Arms Biddulph Festival Exhibition, and The Stockport Art Guild 2012 exhibition which has satisfied my desire to produce art for both the digital and physical mediums.
