{Clockwork Horror}

While on a trip to Paris last year I stumbled upon a small toy shop along a small backstreet. Living amongst the fantastic collection of all kinds of old and new toys I found a selection of horror inspired wind up toys. I picked up the Dracula and Skeleton guys and handed them to the friendly Parisian toymaster. Aswell as finding these gems in this little shop, I also managed to have a small but 100% French conversation with the shop keeper. Très bon.

So this is my illustration inspired by these rather snappily dressed little wind up guys. Enjoy, mercy beaucoup.
