Fantasy Postcard

The last time we saw Raphael Kirchner's work on this site was over a year ago, and it was a cool series for Flo Ziegfeld's theatre. Here, Kirchner has created a lovely fantasy postcard, utilizing a technique that appears to be a form of pointillism, a time-consuming effort that seems rare in commercial illustration.

Beautiful. The technique worked nicely for his depiction of light, both in the fairy's hands and in the reflection on her face.

I agree with Annie, I love how he was able to make it seem like the light in the fairy's hands are real. Glad I stopped by for some inspiring work. Thanks!
