“Desolation and destruction were everywhere. Not a building was left in tact, not a blade of grass grew in the torn and raged soil.”
Warhorse 1
“Gentle fall of snow and the flickering light in the farmhouse.”
WARHORSE 2
“He held up a white handkerchief and began to work his way through the wire.”

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.
