05 Three Beetles

These are illustrations produced for a storyline constructed by myself using inspiration from strange and obscure news stories.

I used Dung Beetles as a way to tell the story of someone being persecuted for not looking the same as everyone else. 

The entire book, was created only using three colours. I played with shades and hues to create more dimension to the scenes. 

The style of illustration in these pieces was something I studied and learned from Artists such as @Salventius and Christiane Spangsberg. It provided such a playful and abstract quality to the work, it’s a style I’ve continued to use.
