The Wasp Factory

The Wasp Factory

Here my entry consists of three illustrations inspired by the classic gothic novel 'The Wasp Factory' by Ian Banks. Having read the book, I wanted to capture a sense of darkness and create the impression that something harmful or evil is about to happen/ or will happen next.
These particular images reflect three which i believe to be vital scenes, within the book. This style allows me to create such a darker atmosphere, fixating on the object itself only. Media entails of indian black ink, acrylic paint, fine liner and photoshop.
