Iron Giant Project
The tremendously awesome Labyrinth Bookstore in Toronto started a contest called 'The Iron Giant Project' which basically asked for fans of the movie to submit pieces inspired by the movie. Click the link to check out all the info and to see all the other submissions (as of November 7).
For my piece, I tried to imagine 10 years down the road (after Hogarth and the Giant are reunited) and what might become of their friendship. I was inpsired by Shel Silverstein's 'The Growing Tree', and how the relationship between the boy and the tree grows and changes as the boy ages. Anyhow, this image is supposed to be of an older Hogarth on a picnic date, it starts raining, and Giant (whom the girl does not know about) comes to the rescue to cover the two.
