My final project was to create a booklet illustrating the history of communication in a way that would stick in people’s minds. I wanted the piece to be full of character and to reference different methods of illustration as they have developed through time to create a collage effect in the booklet. I wanted to have a distinctive narrator for the piece who could tie the different elements together and found the perfect example in Shakespeare.
To me, illustration is communication in its most playful form and this project helped me encapsulate my journey in becoming an illustrator, starting in a dark cave to emerge into the vivid digital world.
I hope to apply this ethos in book and magazine illustration in the future, producing vivid illustrations that are fun and informative.
