My names Simone Ludeman, I'm currently studying Illustration at The University of Westminster. The brief was to choose from the following starting points The Thames, The Human Body or Power. I decided to choose The human Body as it's a interesting and complex topic to study. As the brief was fairly open I took my own direction into specifically looking at tribal medicine and rituals. I find all the pattern and colour as well as the culture itself very inspiring. The first and third piece are final outcomes for the project although I have 8 final outcomes, focusing on different problems in relation to healing rituals.

I often work with pattern and lots of detail, the pieces below are some of my personal work and you can find the rest on my blog.
