The Drowned World – New Poster Design
Posted 3 weeks ago and submitted by John Karley | Share link:

This is my entry for the 2018 Prize for Illustration on the theme of ‘London Stories’. The poster is based on The Drowned World by J.G. Ballard, a story which depicts a future London flooded by climate change and reclaimed by the giant tropical plants and animals of a pre-historic era. The novel explores the nostalgia of the old city and the prospect of transformation into an unknown future. I was really attracted to the imagery of London architecture reclaimed and transformed by nature.
