A Treasure Chest from Paul Taggart's Studio
Warmest greetings from our studio,
No matter our age, no matter our circumstances, there are few amongst us who are not touched by a sprinkling of wonderment, enchantment and magic. For it is these things that can lift our spirits, bring us pleasure and joy. Who amongst us is not familiar with folklore, folk tales and fairy stories; after all, every culture across the globe have these in common, shared across generations, from elders to youngsters and forward to the next.
Every time Eileen and I work on the Elphen Chronicles, we are transported to another world, one that brings us unadulterated delight. Although the work itself is intense and all-consuming, the complexities of everyday life seem to vanish as we lose ourselves in another time and place.
Our work has always brought us joy, the creative nature of it lifts our spirits and none more so than when we are joined in our various projects by like-minded, creative talents. So it is with the Elphen Chronicles, which we do hope comes across to anyone watching our Video-StoryBooks and the many biographical and behind-the-scenes videos that chart this ever-expanding, collaborative, undertaking.
Childhood memories, the thrill of unexplained and mysterious moments, my passion for the wonderment of painting and how it can release the inner, imaginative, self. These lie at the very heart of the Elphen Chronicles stories and tales.
We invite you to join us, to lift the lid on ‘Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles’ Treasure Chest, a magical trove filling with myriad gems of all things Elphen - bearing riches in art, music, writings and creative crafts.
Delve in and you’ll discover, not only all nine chapters in the box-set Video-StoryBook - ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’, but also its upcoming companion Concept Music Album, featuring eleven full-blown music tracks with linking narrative. Nestling amongst the gems you’ll unearth the newly-released Video-StoryBook ‘Starway Sapphires’, a short story from the box-set Paintbox Tales. With more in development, these tales are all inter-connected with ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’ and reveal the secrets of a rather unique paintbox and a talented young artist by the name of Zand.
Rummage through the hoard to reveal a cache of Behind-The-Scenes Videos that let you into our studio, where you can watch me at my easel, creating the Elphen Masterworks oil paintings and storytelling vignettes, plus other Elphen artworks and illustrations, not to mention the Miniature Masterworks oil paintings for ‘Starway Sapphires’.
Root out a wealth of How-to Tutorial Videos, so that you can watch-along, or work-along – whichever takes your fancy. Search out Bonus Features and Painting Reveals, in which we share, not only the music-making process, from initial ideas to recording sessions, but also many other insights into the various creative crafts that go into ‘Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles’. Craft-it-Yourself and release your inner creativity, with templates for different crafty items, such as the Colour Your Own Greetings Cards (with more on their way).
Meanwhile, stay safe and keep well and as ever, all best wishes from everyone at this end,
