This recent project involved creating two spot illustrations for a client who was looking to publish two books. The first – a novel – tells the tale of a warrior who, haunted by his past and trying to live a better life, must now revisit his roots and fight again. The second is a collection of short stories, centered around the themes of loss, community, otherness and supernaturalism.
Both designs needed to encapsulate the mood of each set of tales, and for them to be dynamic. I had so much fun working with form, colour and composition to create something unlike anything I’ve had the chance to make before! They were a pleasure to make, and the result of this project is something unique, imaginative and playful.
