Brave New World

Brave New World

My submission consists of three illustrations inspired by and based on the novel 'Brave New World' by Aldous Huxley. Having read the book, I wanted to capture an overall sense of the futuristic but somewhat morbid nature of the story, whilst maintaining a sense of my visual language. The aesthetic of my work comprises of photomontage/collage elements, and this style allows me include found ephemera and old photographs, reappropriating them to produce my own illustrations. This series of images reflect three different key scenes, and so have slightly different colour and tonal qualities, still preserving the same technique and approach.
