Gone Fishing

Gone Fishing

The three images provided, illustrate a recent reportage based project, which was finalised in a book.

I wanted to recreate the strong structures which can be found on the beach and within the fishing surroundings. Fishing being a harsh and lonely way of earning a living and was explored through my illustration. With the help of interviewing locals I could create strong artworks that showed the diverse industry.

My passion of reportage was explored through strong line drawing, varying the thickness to help create depth and vast composition. Keeping to spot colour using watercolour and ink, helps combine the softness of the water to the sturdy strength of line.
