Poems & Sketches by Chris Corridore.
Meet the Fablework family. I like to call these little creatures Fables. They are the ten characters that helped launch my career as an artist years ago and have continued to grow with me ever since. For this reason I hold them very close to my heart and have begun to build them the world that they deserve.
The symbol of Fablework.
Below is the original drawing for the key. I made it with a Sharpie. You'll also notice upside down the key incorporates the letters F and W.
From myths of magic to tales of glory,
Fables tell a unique story.
Creativity is a never ending pursuit of self expression and illustration has always been my method of doing so, but as I've matured I have begun to understand and gain an appreciation for the power of writing. So, for this project I decided to accompany each character with a poem. I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I loved writing them.
As time passes more creatures will be added to the collection. Below is a sketch for The Astronaut. It will be part of the second Fablework family which takes place in space!
