Stereo/Type

A series of illustrations commissioned for the Lyrix Organix x House of Illustration project STEREO/TYPE for Islington WORD Festival 2018. The project culminated in a collaborative book of visual poetry and a live performance with visuals in the House of Illustration’s South Gallery.

The series explores the ways we read an image and how the viewer becomes complicit in the narrative assumptions – through the use of composition, shape and form.

Following this series of workshops, I was commissioned by House of Illustration x Popshot Magazine x Lyrix Organix to design and run an Illustration & Poetry Masterclass on the theme of Nostalgia.

‘Nostalgia’

“Nostalgia carries secrets of every wind that has ever blown between us

May we remember much with every season”

I collaborated with poet Sophia Thakur to deliver an Illustration & Poetry Masterclass for Popshot Magazine x Lyrix Organix x House of Illustration on 30th July 2018.

We were commissioned to create the artwork for this exclusive partnership between magazine, event producer and gallery on the theme of Nostalgia.

The artwork and poetry created in the Masterclass will be featured on the Popshot website in October – with one spread going into print in the Nostalgia Issue of the magazine in November 2018.
