This afternoon I started thinking about stories and where stories await to be told. I thought about my habit of collecting clothes from different era’s and decided to tell some stories through creating characters and placing them in situations that I may find them. So here are 3 different characters from three different era’s – they aren’t fully fleshed out yet and I think this could be a very interesting body of work, let me know what you think and what I should tweak.
This is Bonny from the 1920’s. She escapes into worlds contained in the musty pages of novels from her fathers library. She imagines that she can fly, is brave, fearless and her favourite novel is Peter Pan.
This is Audrey in the 1930’s. She works as a waitress in her uncle’s Cafe, “The Rouge Espresso Bar” and wants to be a singer and actress in films.
This is Heidi, from the 1960’s. Her parents kitchen has laminated boards everywhere and she doesn’t like it. Heidi likes colours that don’t go together, and wants to be an artist.
