Flickbook Theatre, a Lincoln based company asked me to create 26 illustrations for their upcoming show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Cartography - "A tattered map. Outdated, well-loved, and a nightmare to fold. Sarah is busy dying, counting down her heartbeats until her untimely death. She is studying maps of places she never intends to go. John is driven to travel by the need to be someone interesting. He is drawing lines across continents, counting the borders he’ll cross and the cities he’ll see. Both are looking for a future when they meet each other. Through song, string and a bright red anorak, this is a show that asks if we’ll know happiness when we get there."
The illustrations are projected on an old school OHP. Each one was drawn by hand using fine liners, then scanned into photoshop before being printed onto accetate.
