Surrealism final outcome

These six images were made using a set of rules. I selected an animal, within the collage there had to be; a habitat it wouldn't live in, a person with some kind of association to it, a diagram and some kind of surface pattern.


This is a CMYK print I produced in my screen printing workshops a few weeks ago. Its from a photo I took in New York. I was pleased with the print itself but the scanner doesn't do it justice, it just looks like a badly edited photo...!

The uses of solitude

This is an illustration for the book "The Uses Of Solitude" by Anthony Storr. The first image relates to a part of the essay that talks about the way people deal with the death of a loved one. The British, with their culture of the 'stiff upper lip' applaud people for carrying on with their daily lives through times of grief which leads to pent up anxiety and an inability to face their real emotions. The second image illustrates a case study of a scientist who was manning a weather base in the Antarctic and insisted on doing so alone in an attempt to find pure solitude.

They are painted in acrylic on Fabriano paper, i reckon the first image would make a good screen print.
