Hidden Treasure by Philipstraub Hidden Treasure by Philipstraub
I've yet to post any of my work that is on the sweeter side of things. In addition to the darker fantasy work I enjoy doing, I also do children's books and merchandising. Here is one that was made into a massive 9x12 foot wall mural. Enjoy!

I just came across the wall mural on Home Depot's website and had to find this again on dA to mention how awesome that is. Beautiful work. I used this as my desktop background a while back.

This beautiful work, full of light, kindness, innocence and glee has made me so very happy! I can't stop looking at it, with an ear-to-ear smile. What an incredibly happy moment.

So much love went into this work... it's so evident. The details are enthralling... details that could just not be there, had the artist not put their soul into this piece... such as the little worm in the tree...

They captivate the 'visitor'... every new second I spend looking, I am involuntarily filled with the biggest, most child-like happiness, unobscured by shadows of the trite and banal.

And such a clever use of colours... I love the pastels at the back, suggesting that from here onwards, the road will only get brighter and safer...

It seems that absolutely everything will be ok... because somewhere there's a world like this one... even if it's hidden safely inside your wonderful head! It is such an honour to be be allowed to visit this place. Thank you... and WOW!
