The creation of a silent book for my final major project has been an exciting opportunity to explore and immerse myself into picture book illustration. This an area of my practice where I strive for excellence and am extremely passionate about.
With themes of diversity and mortality, the story follows a determined young bird’s journey to find ‘home’. Character development is an aspect that I enjoy, portraying traits and expression, and building a world for the protagonist to exist in and explore.
I love to experiment in collage playing with bold elements, texture and colour, then applying this technique to book illustration and picture book projects; as featured within this gallery of Little Bird’s Journey, plus additional images of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park book illustrations, and The Brothers Grimm’s The Beam picture book.
