The Otherworld

The Otherworld

These are three illustration from a picture book I did while studying at Falmouth. In total the book has 16 illustrations and has no words. With this project I tried to explore the possibilities of the picture book and how we can use illustration to narrate stories. The story itself is influenced by the book «The Lost World» by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. With this work I wanted to explore moral questions about how far we can go to assure our own survival over that of others and the powers that outmatch our own. The book is something between a children's picture book and a comic and is aimed at a younger audience, but maybe is also interesting for adult readers. The illustrations are produced with a two spot colour printing in mind.
