This piece was made to convey the more domestic side of life is like for these forest spirits, outside of going on a perilous adventure in the forest. In the foreground I have my characters with their family buying food. They may be mythical-like creatures, but they have to go to the store to pick up groceries just like we do! I also took this as an opportunity to do some worldbuilding through the variety of foods available to buy on the shelves. I thought about what these creatures would eat, and how they’d be similar and different to our food. While making this piece I thought of the habit of mind “stretch and explore,” since this piece involves both perspective and drawing many objects such as jars and bags, both of which I struggle with.
