The Toy Circus-Tim Bowers

The Toy Circus-Tim Bowers

  • 關於Tim Bowers的第一本童書《玩具馬戲團》(The Toy Circus)的故事及創作概念。拿到這故事,我非常高興。這故事是 Jan Wahl 撰寫,由加州 Harcourt、Brace、Jovanovich 出版。
    故事發生在夜晚的孩子房間,多夢的時光。當男孩睡著了,他在玩具盒裡的玩具活起來了,男孩當馬戲團主,把整個臥房變成了馬戲團:老虎騎在單輪車上,大熊撐陽傘,淑女們騎在馬背上,還有一群小丑。創造這麼多角色和試著去捕捉如此夢幻的夜晚場景,我覺得很有趣。我嘗試不尋常的透視效果,經常以角色上方的視線、往下觀看馬戲團的活動;讓插畫的某部分延伸到頁面的邊緣,並在延伸的部分加上陰影,營造一種這插畫從書裡跳出來的感覺。
  • Could you tell us more about the story and your creative concept of your first children book,“The Toy Circus ”?I was so excited to be offered this story. It was written by Jan Wahl and published by Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich in California.
    The story takes place in a child’s bedroom at night, a very dreamy time. After the boy falls asleep, the toys in his toy box come to life and a circus fills the bedroom with the boy as ringmaster. There were tigers on unicycles, bears with parasols, ladies on horseback and clowns. I had fun creating the many characters and trying to capture the dreamy, nighttime setting. I played around with unusual perspectives, often from above the characters, looking down on the circus events. I allowed parts of the illustrations to extend into the white borders of the pages and added shadows to the extended parts, creating a feeling that the art was spilling out of the book.
