Around the World in 80 Days
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Vicky Scott | Share link:

I’m pleased to be part of the HAI and Little Chimp Society’s Jules Verne Expo at the Framer’s Gallery, taking place in London this month. My illustration contrasts two of the different characters and places travelled in the novel. One side of the image is Phileas Fogg, in full Victorian top hat and moustache and with a mixture of a London street scene and freezing Alaskan tundra behind him. If you flip the image around, there is the Indian Princess (who Fogg rescues) in more exotic surroundings full of lush undergrowth, tigers, flamingos and monkeys. I also wanted to illustrate the wide variety of different forms of transport he employs to travel the globe so have included the sleigh they use in the American wilderness, ocean liner, elephant and of course the steam train (which is also a nifty device to divide up the design). Use the #JulesVerneExpo hashtag to find more pieces online or visit the Framers Gallery in person!

Vicky is friendly and creative, and her style is bright, fun and very eye-catching. Working in stages from rough concept to finished art, she was open to feedback and willing to accommodate amends and a couple of extras along the way. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and hope I get the opportunity again in the near future.
