I can’t really remember how I thought of this capstone. I just remember getting a really bad meal at a restaurant and sketching it in the parking lot.
I bought Labyrinth on VHS when I was very young. I hadn’t seen the movie before and it was AMAZING! Being a huge fan of anything Jim Henson I was completely blown away with everything. I watched the Fiery scene repeatedly and was fascinated by Hoggle.
One thing I never understood was how many young women were in love with the Goblin King, Jareth. He stole a baby and lived in a castle with hundreds of goblins! Sure he could sing but that doesn’t change the fact he was a real creepy dude who young women shouldn’t fantasize about. Nevertheless I had at least two friends who insisted Jareth was their ideal man (I hope those friends didn’t end up in any abusive relationships although if they married for love, kings, or David Bowie kudos to them).
