Remember your colours

Remember your colours

Illustrations taken from a small book about remembering your lost colours from childhood. The book takes the colours from the feathers of the little girl and transforms them through sails and paper folded boats to her as an adult. This reminds the woman who she really is and takes her back to that moment in time. The book is based on a brief of lost and found for the Derby university. I was inspired by a photo of a little girl dressed up with coloured feathers in her hair and it sparked the idea of lost memories and lost innocence.
