The Boy Who Never Grew Up
This was an attempt to show a commercial application to the art I am producing, a cover treatment for Peter Pan.
I felt that Disney had dominated how people see Peter and Hook... If you go back to Barrie's original text, the descriptions aren't exactly specific but Hook is supposed to look like King Charles II and Peter is described as wearing skeleton leaves and the sap from trees which I felt would make him all autumn coloured.
I also felt that Peter should appear in some way feral, hence the mono-brow, my friend Phil doesn't like it and it would be easy enough to edit out, but I think it fits the character...
