Something I forgot to post…

I had this book lying about in my room all through easter. The author, Judith Schalansky grew up in former East Germany, so could only dream about what that world beyond the iron curtain was actually like.

Today, thats switched to remote islands, and due to the lack of images (aside from the map), only words can be relied on for description, thereby they are recreated fantasies in the readers minds…

Something I have just got round to doing is to chang the illustration style for De Beauvoir Town, with inspiration from the early 20th century London Underground posters promoting the outer suburbs, with more simplified forms, no heavy black outlines, and bright and cheerful. De Beauvoir Town feels like this idolised version of surburban life, so I have chose to depict it in this way.
