‘Pip’s Story’

The Quick & the Dead: Brief Encounters in Brompton Cemetery’

A new podcast series by The Royal Parks & On The Record of stories inspired by Brompton Cemetery. I have been commissioned to create the cover artwork for each podcast episode. The full series will be available later in 2019.

‘Quick’ is an ancient word for living or tender flesh. The illustrations play with the idea of life – in all its variety – in a place of death.

The podcast features audio recordings and portrait photographs of the living people who dream, walk, work and love among the dead in this Victorian gothic Cemetery. The illustrations will be displayed in the New Visitors Centre at Brompton and on the Royal parks website.

Details and links coming soon.
