These images were created for the Folio Society’s competition. For the book Warhorse by Michael Morpurgo.I used my textures from enamelling and welding to create these. For the text I printed onto leather then scanned it in. I wanted the typography to have an indented effect.
It was nice to work on a narrative as a change from my usual environmental influences. As well as the change of theme it was good to contextualise my work in a different way.
Image 1: “Desolation and destruction were everywhere. Not a building was left in tact, not a blade of grass grew in the torn and ravaged soil.”
Image 2: “Gentle Fall of snow and the flickering light in the farmhouse.”
Image 3: “He held up a white handkerchief and began to work his way through the wire.”
