These images are from my adaptation of Joseph Conrad's Youth. I created 5 images in total, and they are bound together with excerpts of the text. I placed emphasis on editing the text and images so that they worked in unison, both incomplete without the other, rather than simply applying embellishment or decoration to the text. The Brief was part of a wider project to illustrate a series of short stories. The main focus when constructing the images was to accurately capture the atmosphere of Conrad's original narrative.
