Skelewags is a wonderful little project where art meets environment. Creator Richard Vermaak describes his characters as having a kind of “doomed innocence.”
This started out with the search for interesting textures to use as backdrops for the scenes and quickly progressed to the point of interpreting the surfaces or objects from a different perspective.
Designing within restrictions encourages creativity and right from the start. I established rules pertaining to the creation of the Skelewags. Neither the photographs nor the environments are allowed to be altered, propped or edited in any way.
There is also an Alice in Wonderland series of designs.
