iAnna by Will Self Illustrations by Catherine Mitchell

We were given a narrative illustration brief to produce four inside images and one cover image for a short story we chose from a list we were given. I chose Will Self's "iAnna" and used a combination of photography and collage to produce my four images and book cover. These are my four finished inside images and my cover image. I took an abstract approach to illustrating this book by conveying the mental turmoil of the character "Anna". Each collage portrays her mental state; her confusion, her mind/reality rotting away and her belief that she has become a piece of technology that can be controlled.
