The art of visual storytelling has always fascinated me. Illustration has the power to communicate complex messages, evoke emotion and alter our perceptions of the world around us, in an artful way. I enjoy creating visual narratives based on real-life experiences, tackling social issues through my artistic abilities.
The focus of my final project explores the subject of emotion. In today’s climate, an alarming rate of young people are experiencing mental health difficulties. These illustrations represent the challenges and emotional issues that affect children’s daily lives. They are intended to promote relevant conversations surrounding mental
well-being, reiterating the message that ‘it’s ok to not feel ok’.
This piece centres on the theme of loneliness. These feelings are sensitively portrayed through the form of monsters, capturing children’s vivid imaginations. The grayscale scheme and minimal use of colour represents emotion in a universally appealing manner.
