Excited to share that my entry 'our trip to the park' has been longlised for the World of Illustration Awards, 2024. I submitted 3 final double page spreads which you can see below.
I had lots of fun playing with detail and pattern for this project, especially the image below depicting the girl and her dog climbing through the trees using a repeat pattern as a narrative tool.

I wanted to create a narrative that follows a girl and her mum who take the bus into town to visit their local park. The girl uses her imagination to explore her surroundings and to escape into her own imaginary world. Throughout I aimed to play with pattern and detail to enrich the narrative, whilst reflecting what I see in my own local, once industrial town in the UK to give the story a sense of place
