The Last Post

Here are images for some of the stories, which brings you up to date. When developing images and icons for a story I was shown a lot from a fellow student, Helen, who said she had no talent for drawing, but great skill at printmaking. She had a brief for a cover to an Ibsen book and could invent really striking and bold iconic shapes, full of symbolic meaning without having to draw detail or shading. Instead her card was in creating textures and experimenting with colour. I still remember her Ibsen work of a masked woman, executed with a primitive simplicity, how everyone agreed how effective it was. That's I think where the picture for Grace Barrys' Red comes from. Building an image from texture and not being concerned with details.
