Abstract

International Illustration Competition, (Published 2007) ISBN 978-3-87439-719-2. Freistil – Best of European Illustration 3 is an annual of illustration juried. This year the international submissions were selected by Joe Newton, deputy art director at Rolling Stone and Adrian Shaughnessy editor of Varoom – The Journal of Illustration and the Made Image. The selected piece titled ‘Long Nose Liar’ is derived from the premise of creating a visual response to the digital communication phenomenon of ‘emoticons’. This is part of a wider body of work that seeks to challenge the dominance of computer generated imagery that lacks three dimensional reference and texture, and to investigate the combined and synergetic use of digital and traditional media through the introduction of various art media and substrates. The intention is to create a more powerful visual dynamic, wherein the visual content and evidence of production processes are of equal value. As indicated in output 1, ‘Kiss on the Lips’, these visual symbols which use text to create pictures enabling communication through mobile phones and email, are an appropriate source material and analogous to the illustrators role in creating images in response to text. This original work on paper utilises traditional painting techniques combined with found materials in the process of generating a digtally composited output. This methodology is intended to comment on, and reflect the nature of subject matter; easily read graphic images, communicated by means of technology.
