My submission features work from a self initiated brief to create illustrated responses to Kafka's writing. The main piece is a response to his novel The Trial in which I have tried to present the nightmarish confusion and ambiguity that is so apparent in the story. The supporting piece is a smaller work based on the short story metamorphosis, here I have tried to capture the self loathing of a man who wakes to find himself transformed onto an insect.
