African Folktale, first 'completed' compositions.

New term and new work. This is an african folk tale about how the tortoise's shell became bumpy and mosaiced like it is. Short story, the birds make him wings, he goes to their party in the sky, eats all their food. they get mad, he falls from the clouds and lands on his shell.
I have attempted to incorperate african pattern into the artwork, so you will see it in the colour if you look a bit closer :D These would all be double page spreads from a picture book.

Tiger Habitat Poster.

Second poster, finished about as quickly as the first. Not great but i enjoy the concrete poetry anyway.

Polar bear threatened poster idea.

A test(possibly) poster about polar bears. The colours might well be too bright, and the message is perhaps murky, but the artwork is fabulous, also it took me 11hours to paint and digitally complete. longest i've spent on a single piece of work in a long time XD

'The Werewolf' Angela Carter Story.

An illustrated set of pages for the angela carter story. Not bound or anything, just pages. :) Lino prints with boring standard Baskerville typeface. I cut an entire AaBbCc etc alphabet from lino but couldn't turn it into a typeface file and no way in hell was i hand setting all of that! But yeah :)
