The works from her latest Book project
“Where Shooting Stars Land”
are reminiscent of the imaginative vision of Chris Van Allsburg.
Rebecca Santo is from Cleveland, Ohio & a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art with a BFA in Illustration. Aside from storytelling, She loves exploring new places, sketching in local cafes, and getting lost in my thoughts. She explains,"I am in love with all things old-fashioned; from fashion, to architecture, to any music more than 40 years old. As a proud daydreamer, my work often reflects anything from whimsical fairytales to capturing the beauty of simple everyday curiosities; whatever allows viewers to fall into the warmth of nostalgia or run free in their imaginations. My favorite method of storytelling, however, is finding the perfect way to visually blend the familiarity of reality and a world of fantasy into one.
“Where Shooting Stars Land” is a series of ten microfiction stories. Every story is completed with one sentence of narrative, paired with one illustration. With this, the reader is left with enough information to establish a story, but is left with the question of “what happens next.” Each story contains either a person, place or things I have encountered in vivid recurring dreams I used to have throughout my childhood.
