BA (Hons) Illustration
In this project, The Soul’s Messenger, I explored the questions of what the soul is, the message it has for us and who or what delivers it. The outcome was to create an album repackage for the repertoire titled ‘The Soul’s Messenger’ by the contemporary composer Meredith Monk. With research into related theories about souls and the creative practice and philosophy of the composer, I was able to create illustrations that are engaging for both new and existing audiences.
Being a concept-driven creative, I absolutely thrived on the challenge of integrating anecdotes from Monk’s career into the larger design of the album and further pushed myself in how I source imagery for collage so that it can enrich the final outcome with its own history.
