Chris Sickels' art is simply incredible. It's the kind that would put a smile on even the most stoic of faces. His illustrations are extremely unique, boasting imaginative characters and sets that he creates and photographs. That's right – these whimsical illustrations actually began as small 3D sets (each puppet is about 6-8 inches)! It's a fantastical merge of sculpture, illustration, and photography – not to mention a whole dose of creativity and imagination! The amount of time put into just one of these images is really inspiring – it just shines with passion. It's no wonder that his work has graced dozens of magazines and children's books.
