A Journey

Wednesday, 2 February 2011
For this project I had to create a narrative without the use of text or figures.

I decided to focus on the relationship between childhood memories and my current perceptions.

I went to Islington in London (a place where I spent every weekend for about 3 years of my youth), to see how much the area had changed. I made a book with linked images that could be unfolded to create one long journey, combining the idealised impressions of my boyhood, with the reality I witnessed more recently.

To contrast with the harsh pen and ink outlines, I used bright watercolours to create a dreamy, child-like atmosphere to the images.

Below are the first few pages of the finished book.
