Unspoken Imagery

These images were created in response to Angela Carter's book; The Magic Toy Shop. Produce from observational studies I made on location drawing in Pollocks Toy Museum, by taking that knowledge I created mono prints. In the museum I saw many worn toys, worn down just as the character 'Melanie' is. I wanted to create the atmosphere of the story, rather then a scene from it. To illustrate between the words of the story.
