Zed and The Cormorant Book Illustration
A story within a story! I had to capture sketchbook pages as if drawn by one of the main characters, Denzil. A young adult boy living rough in a remote Cornish wood, totally obsessed by the Cormorants that nest and perch along the riverbank in the middle of the woods. I created 8 'sketchbook' pages which also hold the Nordic folktale "The Cormorants of Udrost" written by the character around his Cormorant sketches. It meant writing with my non dominant hand to capture the jagged and spiky writing of the character. I worked very closely with the writer, Clare Owen and the publisher Arachne Press.
Part of my MA Illustration Final Major Project development work, I created analogue and digital mixed media products. This piece was used as decoration on the handmade box I created and as a postcard. To see the videos of my Final Major Project for my MA, the Pop up book and the handmade box - please, see the links below.
Originally done as a monotone ink sketch to accompany a magazine column, I used to do for the now defunct magazine Cornwall Today. I would draw a cafe, do a short write up about it and then include a recipe obtained from the owners. It ran for a year before the magazine folded. This later edition has been digitally coloured.
Mevagissey Fishing Boat Print
My business, The Sunny Cupboard, started just before Christmas 2020 and I created this colourful collaged fishing boat originally as a hanging decoration. Both the prints and the decorations are available on my website or my Etsy Shop.
