An inspiration, and admirable illustrator. I discovered her work during my second year, while working on my third project and her style was remarkable.
I wanted to re-look at her book cover illustrations, as they were quite strong on how they were created visually to highlight what the story could be like or what could happen.
I also absolutely adore her character designs, as well, so that’s another aspect that intrigued me, but my worry right now, is how i’m going to convey the genre of Animal farm and embrace its satire. In my opinion, in relation to these two cover arts; the choice of tones used, even the type, they’re all things that can connect back to the films or even the stories that are set for The Lord of the rings. The grungy, mild tones that help to make it feel as if it’s something that’s been pulled directly from another world, such as this one; it gives it that musky undertone that all’s not bright and cheery, but their about to be off on a long journey somewhere. Even the choice of location for the imagery, the position of the characters, help to set a scene for what the person’s going to expect.
