Goldsmith and The Cashmere Singing Girl

DATE: 2019

This project is a personal project. When I decided to prepare this storybook, I had this idea in my mind; "how can I make a connection between Iranian paintings and modern illustration?" So I had chosen this story because I saw this is a fantastic story which, is I can show my ideas in the design of illustrations, also about the eastern world and of course; historical plot. This project had made me new challenges so it needed to study images of "Arabian nights", clothing styles, buildings and many other cases. I started to search about these subjects then I have prepared a storyboard then I have made characters by photomontage. By using spiral stairs and the attachment of houses by these stairs, as well as the use of geometric patterns in buildings and Persian motifs, I tried to show Eastern world cultures.
