My practice addresses the importance for illustrators to engage with the internet as medium in its own right. It is vital for illustrators to work with the medium’s materiality, benefits and restrictions.

Alongside an interest in illustration work that can only exist on the internet, I wanted to use my own printmaking and animation skills to illustrate the poetry of Charles Bukowski. My website aims to distort the normal relationship between imagery and text in a traditional poetry anthology by existing only on web.

My practice focuses in on the common stereotypes within children’s literature and tries to turn them on their heads. This project has been an experiment in the use of gender neutral colour schemes and loosely painted imagery to readapt a classic Grimms fairytale to represent a modern audience with more up-to-date gender representations. It has also been a chance to take a step forward into combining 2D and 3D illustration methods.

Feeling the most comfortable working around psychology and architecture topics I have created series of artwork for books ‘’Personal and Collective Unconscious of a Cat Archetype’’ and ‘’Personal Unconscious Places’’ inspired by C. G. Jung’s ‘’Collective Unconscious’’.

Alongside the self-analysis on a selection of my own dreams, I base my work around the research on the Jungian theories of dreams and the unconscious.

Techniques used: automatic drawing – inspired by the Abstract Expressionists; alternative photography – capturing the moment as an image; digital texture collages – layering the objects, textures and places taken from the subconscious state (dreams) recorded at the start of the project.

Chinese mythology is part of my main interest in the fictional world. Looking into the world of eastern culture and folklore, I’ve stumbled upon some really beautiful stories. My aim is to visually reintroduce mythology in a contemporary way. In my spare time I draw fiction as a hobby, I find it deeply indulging as it helps me escape reality.

To help show this in my project, I have researched into mythological creatures to get an idea of their visual form and appearance. By going to exhibitions and wildlife centres, I’ve created my own illustrations based of these legendary creatures.

Julianna’s work is based around printmaking. She enjoys the methodical and labour intensive nature of printing. For her final project she continues an exploration of the alternative lithography process called Mokulito; to present a series inspired by Slavic Creation Myth.

In her projects she uses a range of traditional printmaking techniques, together with relief printing, to create hybrid prints. Her practice encompasses screen-printing, relief printing, collage, painting and drawing.

As a visual designer I get a real buzz from seeing people’s reaction when they are viewing my work and the interaction between the works to viewer. With that in mind I decided to mix my illustration with interactive elements to add more personality to my work. I truly believe that interaction will be increasingly more useful in design, which is a journey I am excited to take. I have grown a lot since my early years and my eyes are usually way too big for my capabilities but that’s what creativity is about: pushing the limits to new highs.

I wanted to explore the relationship between the medium of the work and the form of the book. The Minority Report uses the idea of conflicting time paths to trick the reader. Thus instead of telling the story from the point of view of the characters, I chose to use the idea of fakery to tell the story through objects and “photographs” from this alternate past.

My process begins by researching into our real past, before carefully constructing the false artefacts from real images using montage, photo manipulation, photography, and drawing. My intention is to create images that feel somewhat familiar, but with unexpected details, giving the reader the feeling of seeing something not quite right.
