Bedknobs and Broomsticks Items
Saturday, 4 February 2012
I have loved Bedknobs and Broomsticks since. . . Well, since forever. It’s an odd one for 1970s Disney. Full of Nazis and witchcraft, as a child it seemed quite scary – and potentially real. I had a great time fabricating these pieces. The bed knob was found online and is completely inaccurate to the movie (if you have an accurate one, e-mail me and perhaps we can strike up a deal). However, the accurate bed knob appears to be from a 1970s spun brass bed, complete with lacquer-looking lines in the brass.
Movie version of book:
The book is actually not a book, but a treatment of the front cover. Originally I had started the art, but my friend Jester over at J6Studios did a much better job rendering it. It is printed on muslin and shot with an acrylic spray.
The Star of Astoroth was drawn in Illustrator, imported into Rhino3D and then milled on my Roland MDX-15 and then cast in green resin.
