Sunny and cloudy weather shop Series Story & Motif
= In mythology or folk tales, there are many animals that are related to the weather or represent deities that control the weather.
The “Sunny & Cloudy Weather Shop” series takes imagery from Celtic mythology, fables, and animals as the motif and creates characters out of elements related to weather such as rain, temperature, humidity, and lightning.
In addition to Skoll, more diverse characters related to the weather have been planned for release, to complete a story that shows the changes in weather throughout a day.
This is why it was named the “Sunny & Cloudy Weather Shop.”
The motif for this Weather Shop series was taken from the song “Why Does it Always Rain on Me” by Travis.
The metaphor of rainy weather to represent unhappiness inspired me to create this series.
As we often express how we feel in terms of how we would also describe a sunny or a cloudy weather,
I wanted to create a story in which the characters’ state actually affects the weather.
As sweet and beautiful as the music of Travis.
The first character of the series, Skoll, is a wolf girl who chases the sun and causes lightning.
The motif for this was taken from the sun-chasing wolf Skoll from Celtic mythology and Raijuu, a beast in oriental mythology believed to have caused lightning.
The cloud-shaped head and costume were designed to show the state of the clear or cloudy sky through different colours.
The way Skoll feels can affect the weather.
If the wolf above the head wakes up, the sun disappears and the clothing and hair representing the sky turn dark. Lightning strikes and rain may also ensue.
Conversely, when the wolf is asleep, a cloudless sunny sky will be created.
Our little bird was right about the 5″ vinyl art toy and we are glad L0-Fi has this production Skoll and already packaged up for sale. Vinyl SKOLL’s will be on sale NOW at https://www.etsy.com/shop/LOFICollectiveDesign
