I began this endeavor on a whim that turned into a whimsical journey into the fantastical and impossible. This twelve month series of digital artwork and photo-manipulations were an honor to create.
Folklore about fairies has been around since time immemorial. Stories of their grace, mystique and deviancy have been passed down through fables for generations. I set out to create a beautiful short story with the images; Capturing daily life, but adding a bit of magic to them.
This project became popular with friends and acquaintances as I began making and sharing more. I started with free-use photos from Pexels.com, but people started reaching out about the possibility of being made into fairies. I ended up having the high honor of photographer Priscilla Balderas of Lovepris.com, Rebecca Fegan of afterallthistime.org and Amber Castro submit photos of themselves.
With the calendar finished, I stand in awe and grateful for the people who followed this journey into the surreal.
